Just Eat It: A Food Waste Story - Free Screening

Just Eat It: A Food Waste Story

Free Screening at the Newtown Community & Cultural Centre
Thursday 10th November, 6pm

We all love food. As a society, we devour countless cooking shows, culinary magazines and foodie blogs. So how could we possibly be throwing so much of it in the trash?

Newtown locals, Renee Rushton and Sofia Robinson are outraged by the amount of food waste and want to make a difference in their community. Renee says “Average NZ households waste $563 worth of food a year. We could feed the entire population of Dunedin for two years with that amount of food! We want our community to know how to make a difference and be able to save their money and minimise wasted food filling our landfills.”

Sofia and Renee are hosting a free screening of the acclaimed food waste documentary Just Eat It- A food waste story on Thursday 10 November, from 6pm, at the Newtown Community and Cultural Center. On the night there will be speakers from food rescue organisations talking about what individuals can do to impact Wellington's food waste statistics.

Just Eat It was created by filmmakers and food lovers Jen Rustemeyer, and Grant Baldwin. They dive into the issue of food 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 and survive only on discarded food. What they find is truly Shocking.

Just Eat It has been met with critical acclaim internationally. It has won awards such as the VIFF Impact Award at the Vancouver International Film Festival and the People’s Choice at the Calgary International Film Festival, and been shown across the globe.
