This event will be a screening of the film "Dive! Living off America's Waste" http://www.divethefilm.com/ Dive is a 50 minute film about food waste. Inspired by a curiosity about our country's careless habit of sending food straight to landfills, the multi-award-winning
documentary DIVE! follows filmmaker Jeremy Seifert and friends as they dumpster dive in the back alleys and gated garbage receptacles
of Los Angeles' supermarkets. In the process, they salvage thousands of dollars worth of good, edible food - resulting in an inspiring
documentary that is equal parts entertainment, guerrilla journalism and call to action.

After clearly displaying the problem of food waste, this event will be an opportunity to discuss a local food waste solution. Dana Frasz, Founder and Director of Food Shift will talk about her plan to reduce food waste, provide jobs and create more sustainable community in Oakland.

The event is free but we suggest a donation. We will have food, drink and will be hosting a $2 per ticket raffle of Ecover cleaning products. Please spread the word and contact me with any questions or if you are interested in sponsoring the event with raffle prizes, food or drink. Thank you!
