Movie Screening and Discussion

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 ownfridge. 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. What they find is truly shocking.

Join us for a screening of Just Eat It: A Food Waste Movie followed by a conversation with Elizabeth Bennett, founder of Fruitcycle.

Fruitcycle is a social enterprise that makes healthy, locally sourced snacks using produce that would otherwise go to waste while providing jobs for women who have been formerly incarcerated, homeless, or are otherwise disadvantaged.

Light refreshments will be served.
