Wasted! The Story of Food Waste
Film and conversation
October 27th

Two groups in Palo Alto, Transition Palo Alto and Zero Waste Palo Alto present a special showing of WASTED! The Story of Food Waste, this Friday night.

WASTED! sheds light on the pressing issue of food waste. Every year 80% of the world’s water, 40% of the world’s land, and 10% of the world’s energy is dedicated to growing the food we eat, and each year 1.3 billion tons of that food is just thrown away. That’s a third of all food grown around the world.

WASTED! explores the problem and offers solutions like reorienting consumer perspectives on the food normally cast aside, and changes we can make to our food production chain to create a more sustainable food system.

You’ll meet forward-thinking chefs and thought leaders who offer creative, often mouth-watering solutions. Determined individuals and organizations are already influencing the future of food recovery and demonstrating how eating can empower people in the fight to solve one of the world’s most vexing dilemmas.
