Join us for a screening of the award-winning documentary Just Eat It: A Food Waste Story. Follow film makers Jen and Grant as they dive into the issue of food 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 cold turkey and survive only on foods that would otherwise be thrown away. Just Eat It looks at our systemic obsession with expiry dates, perfect produce and portion sizes, and reveals the core of this seemingly insignificant issue that is having devastating consequences around the globe.
All ages welcome.
The film will begin at 7:00 p.m., following a welcome and introduction at 6:45.
