Just Eat It: Film screening commences at 7.30pm
Just Eat It: a film about food waste, guarantees you will never look at your fridge the same way again. We all love food. As a society, we devour countless cooking shows, culinary magazines and foodie blogs. So how could we possibly be throwing more than a third of it in the bin? Filmmakers and food lovers Jen and Grant 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 and survive only on discarded food. What they find is truly shocking. See foodwastemovie.com for further information about the film-makers and the movie.
