JUST EAT IT: A food waste story

JUST EAT IT: A food waste story

We all love food. As a society, we devour countless cooking shows, culinary magazines and foodie blogs. So how could we possibly be throwing nearly 50% of it in the trash?

Filmmakers and food lovers Jen and Grant (from the Clean Bin Project) dive into the issue of waste from farm, through retail, all the way to the back of their own fridge. After catching a glimpse of the billions of dollars of good food that is tossed each year in North America, they pledge to quit grocery shopping and survive only on discarded food - you'll see what happens. Here's a preview of the film.

Winner of numerous awards, including Audience Choice at the 2014 Hot Docs Film Festival.

"Hugely entertaining… will leave audiences gobsmacked." – Variety
“Smart, snappy documentary” – Globe and Mail
"Compelling and inspiring.” – Digital Journal

After the film, Maybo Auyeung from the City of Palo Alto will join the discussion and share what's happening locally.
