Can you imagine if every time you opened your wallet, a third of your cash fell out — and you did nothing about it? Consider the fact that one-third of the food grown annually for human consumption is never eaten - for one reason or another, it ends up in the garbage. That's $218 billion — or 1.3 billion tons — of food annually. In America, families chuck about 25 percent of the food and beverages they buy at a cost of $1,365 to $2,275 annually. Yet at the same time, 800 million people around the globe are starving. It's a problem — but one with no shortage of solutions.
WASTED! THE STORY OF FOOD WASTE aims to change the way people buy, cook, recycle, and eat food. Through 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, and delicious changes to solve one of the greatest problems of the 21st Century.
Film screening sponsored by funding from Undergraduate Department Representatives; Environmental Studies; Health: Science, Society, and Policy; Sociology; Social Justice and Social Policy; and Brandeis Sustainability. Food will be provided by Campus Activities Board. A post-screening discussion will follow led by Food Recovery Network.
