"Just Eat It" documentary screens today at library
Bud Werner Memorial Library, Yampa Valley Sustainability Council and the Community Agriculture Alliance present a free screening of the documentary film "Just Eat It" and discussion about food waste at 6:30 p.m. today in Library Hall.
Filmmakers and food lovers Jen and Grant dive into the issue of waste from farm, through retail, all the way to the back of their own fridge. 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 cold turkey and survive only on foods that would otherwise be thrown away.
Featuring interviews with TED lecturer, author and activist Tristram Stuart and acclaimed author Jonathan Bloom, "Just Eat It" looks at the country's systemic obsession with expiration dates, perfect produce portion sizes and reveals the core of this insignificant issue that is having devastating consequences across the globe.
The film brings farmers, retailers, inspiring organizations and consumers to the table in a cinematic story that is equal parts education and delicious entertainment.
Arrive early to learn about local initiatives to divert and minimize food waste, and meet the organizers who are making it happen. Visit steamboatlibrary.org/events for more information.
