Joel Burt-Miller, '16, has been selected for a 2016-2017 Fulbright U.S. Student Award to India

While in India he will be completing an English Teaching Assistantship where he will be placed in a non-profit school working with middle school and high school students teaching conversational English and composition. He will also be engaging in community health research and work based on the community he will be placed in, possibly also incorporating music and the arts. As of now the specifics of his project are unknown because he does not know where he will be yet, but "He is very excited!"

The Fulbright Program is the flagship international educational exchange program of the United States. As a Finalist, you will represent the country as a cultural ambassador while you are overseas, helping to enhance mutual understanding between Americans and the people in India. You will join over 100,000 Fulbright U.S. Student Program alumni who have undertaken grants since the program began in 1948.

Wasted! The Story of Food Waste Screening

Mandel G03

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% 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 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 canmake small changes all of them delicious 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.

                                                                                                  

Monday, December 11 at 1:30-5:30pm
