Upcoming Events

FREE FILM SCREENING—WASTED! The Story of Food Waste

WASTED! THE STORY OF FOOD WASTE aims to change the way people buy, cook, recycle & eat food. Through the eyes of chef-heroes like Bourdain, Dan Barber, Mario Batali, Massimo Bottura & Danny Bowien, audiences see how the world’s most influential chefs make the most of every kind of food, transforming ostensible scraps into incredible dishes that create a more secure food system. WASTED! exposes the criminality of food waste & how it contributes to climate change, and reveals how each of us can make changes—all of them delicious—to solve one of the greatest problems of the 21st Century.

Tuesday April 23, 2019, 6:00-7:30 p.m.
