Sustainability & Film: Just Eat It

Food waste is at it again, and this movie shines the spotlight on how America has its work cut out. Just Eat It is a film about food lovers, food waste, and how far some are willing to go to help reduce edible food ending up in the landfills. Food waste is not only contributing to food insecurity, but also to wasted water and land use in growing the food as well.JustEatITimage

If you haven’t seen the other few posts related to food waste, check them out for more information! You can also check out this film if you’re in the Seattle area. There are many showings of it across Seattle and viewing is free so you can learn more about how food waste is happening right under our noses.

If you’d like some positive information though about an organization that saves food, you can learn from and volunteer with Seattle Food Rescue! They recover small amounts of food from local businesses that would usually go to waste and deliver them to low income residents of Seattle. The best part? They do it via bike to prevent further carbon emissions.

Food rescue or recovery is one way to ensure food feeds people and not compost bins!
