DWFI is sponsoring a screening of “Wasted” followed by a panel discussion on food waste at the Mary Riepma Ross Media Arts Center from 7-9 p.m. on April 18th. The event is part of Earthstock, a month-long celebration of planet coordinated by UNL undergrads each April.
WASTED! THE STORY OF FOOD WASTE aims to change the way people buy, cook, recycle, and eat food. Through the 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 into incredible dishes that create a more secure food system. WASTED! exposes the criminality of food waste and how it’s directly contributing to climate change and shows us how each of us can make small changes – all of them delicious – to solve one of the greatest problems of the 21st Century.
