We'll be showing the 2017 movie Wasted!.

Through the eyes of famous chefs, audiences will see how they make the most of every kind of food, transforming what most people consider scraps into incredible dishes that create a more secure food system.

We learn that food is wasted at every link in the supply chain: on the farm, at the grocery store, in restaurants, and on our plates. In response, the EPA has established a food waste pyramid with the goal of preventing, or at least minimizing waste. The upcycle is described as the prioritization of food waste: people-livestock- generate energy-create nutrient rich soil.

The film takes us through each level of this, and we make our way around the globe.

Join us at 6:30pm for the potluck (optional) the movie will start promptly at 7pm. trailer link -
