Film Night – Just Eat It: A Food Waste Story
Sep 28 @ 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm

Everyone welcome to come along to see Just Eat It, a 74-minute documentary film about food waste and food rescue by Peg Leg Films in partnership with British Columbia’s Knowledge Network.

Delicious entertainment – you’ll never look at your fridge the same way again.

We all love food. As a society, we devour countless cooking shows, culinary magazines and foodie blogs. So how could we possibly be throwing nearly 50% of it in the trash? Filmmakers and food lovers Jen and Grant dive into the issue of 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 cold turkey and survive only on foods that would otherwise be thrown away. 

See the trailer here 

£6.00 per person, spaces are limited so advance booking is advised. A discussion on food waste will follow the film. Refreshments and popcorn provided!

To book, call (01792) 480200 or email bookings@environmentcentre.org.uk, card payments accepted.
