'Wasted! The Story of Food Waste'

Nari Kye and Anna Chai/2017/90 min/Waste

FILM DESCRIPTION: "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 Anthony 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 shamefulness of food waste and how it’s directly contributing to climate change. The film shows how each of us can make small changes – all of them delicious – to solve one of the greatest problems of the 21st Century.

After the screening, join us via live facilitated chat on Zoom for a discussion with food waste experts. Stephanie McCray, Executive Coach with Executive Material, will facilitate the conversation.

Local Action Partners will be:

--Jen Nelson, Board Member, Chicago Food Scrap Coalition

--Jonathan Pereira, Executive Director, Plant Chicago

Also available for free streaming anytime:
