Wasted! The Story of Food Waste

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

On FRIDAY OCTOBER 13th at 7:00 PM, Climate Resolve and LA Food Policy Council will present a brief pre-show discussion of food waste, climate change, and Los Angeles-based solutions to these urgent problems, with:
