World Food Day: Wasted! The Story of Food Waste

Monday, October 16 - 5:30pm - 7:00pm
Location: Rines Auditorium
Audience: Adults, Seniors

As a closing to the First Annual Maine Gleaning Week, the Food Recovery Coalition and Healthy Communities of the Capital Area, supported by Harvard Pilgrim HealthCare Foundation, will present the Maine Premiere of  WASTED! The Story of Food Waste.

WASTED! The Story of Food Waste , a film by Anna Chai and Nari Kye, aims to change the way people buy, cook, recycle, and eat food. Through the the eyes of chef-heroes like Bourdain, Dan Barber, Mario Batali, Massimo Bottura, and Danny Bowien, audiences will see how the world’s most influential chefs make the most of every kind of food, transforming what most people consider scraps into incredible dishes that create a more secure food system. WASTED! exposes the criminality of food waste and how it’s directly contributing to climate change and shows us how each of us can make small changes – all of them delicious – to solve one of the greatest problems of the 21st Century.
