Just Eat It: A Food Waste Movie

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. Following the film join us for a panel disscusion with local experts and community advocates who provide a local perspective on food waste in our community.
