Just Eat It: A Food Waste Story
Ryan Parker, moderating
Who would throw food away?In the powerful film, Just Eat It, we discover that almost everyone does. This is a 74-minute documentary film about food waste and food rescue. Filmmakers Jen Rustemeyer and Grant Baldwin explore the issue of waste from farms, retail, and our own refrigerators. In a world filled with food insecurity, the film is shocking, compelling, and movingly entertaining. Produced by Peg Leg Films in partnership with British Columbia’s Knowledge Network. Ryan Parker, Environmental Policy Outreach Coordinator, Natural Resources Council of Maine, will introduce the film and moderate the discussion that follow.

This event is free and open to the public.
