In the United States, 40 percent of the food produced goes to waste. It’s time we do something about it!
Join the Environmental Education Coalition of Napa County (EECNC) for a screening of the film, WASTED! The Story of Food Waste to learn about the problem of food waste and how to stop it.
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 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.
This screening is on Friday, November 1 in the Ecolab Theater at The CIA at Copia. Doors open at 6:30. Film starts at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10 via Eventbrite or at the door.
All film proceeds go to benefit the Darcy Aston Environmental Advocacy Scholarship for local high school students pursuing environmental studies. For more information, visit napaenvironmentaled.org.
