    Wasted!: The Story of Food Waste

    WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 28 AT 7:30PM | REGULAR ADMISSION PRICES

    “Thanks to our community partners: Center for Biological Diversity, The Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona and P.O.W.W.O.W. (Produce on Wheels With-Out Waste)

    Featuring a post-film Q&A with local experts: Jessica Herrera from the Center for Biological Diversity, Megan Carney from University of Arizona’s Center for Regional Food Studies, Chester Phillips from University of Arizona’s Compost Cats, and Yolanda Soto from Borderlands Food Bank/POWWOW!

    The Rockefeller Foundation, which in 2016 made a $130 million commitment to cut food waste in half by 2030, supported Zero Point Zero Films and Anthony Bourdain to create WASTED! The Story of Food Waste, a feature-length documentary that will change how people buy, cook and eat food.

    Through the eyes of chef-heroes like 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 and rejects into incredible dishes that feed more people and create a more sustainable food system. The film also features several food waste reduction stories all over the world including waste-fed pigs in Japan, a disposal program that has reduced household food waste by 30% in South Korea, and a garden education curriculum New Orleans. WASTED! The Story of Food Waste showcases forward-thinking leaders who show how each of us can make small changes – all of them delicious – to solve one of the greatest problems of the 21st Century. (Dir. by Anna Chai & Nari Kye, 2017, USA, 85 mins., Rated TV-MA)”
