Free Film Screening Just Eat It. A food waste story
We all love food, so how is it possible that we’re throwing 50 percent of it in the trash? In the U.S. alone, approximately 133 billion pounds of food go uneaten annually. Filmmakers Grant Baldwin and Jen Rustemeyer wanted to learn more about this horrific waste and set out to follow food waste from the farm, through retail, all they way to the back of their own fridge. They vowed to only eat food entering the waste stream and they documented their experiment in this entertaining, funny, and poignant film that will make viewers never think the same way about food again.
The City of Maple Valley, in partnership with cities of Black Diamond, Covington, Kent and King County Solid Waste will present this deliciously entertaining award winning film.
When: Thursday, April 28, 2016, doors open 6 pm, film starts at 7 pm
Where: Kentlake High School Performing Arts Center - 21401 SE Falcon Way, Kent WA 98042
