October Fourth Friday/Films of Vision and Hope – Wasted!

Transition Palo Alto is pleased to join with Zero Waste Palo Alto for a special showing of WASTED! The Story of Food Waste.

WASTED! sheds a light on the pressing issue of food waste. Every year 80% of the world’s water, 40% of the world’s land, and 10% of the world’s energy is dedicated to growing the food we eat, yet each year 1.3 billion tons of food is thrown out. That’s a third of all food grown around the world.

Produced by author and celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain, WASTED! explores the problem and offers solutions like reorienting consumer perspectives on the food  normally cast aside, and changes we can make to our food production chain to create a more sustainable food system.

You’ll meet forward-thinking chefs and thought leaders like Dan Barber, Mario Batali, Danny Bowien, and Massimo Bottura, who offer creative, often mouth-watering solutions. Determined individuals and organizations are already influencing the future of food recovery and demonstrating how eating can empower people in the fight to solve one of the world’s most vexing dilemmas.
