Sierra Q
Sierra Quadra kicks off 2017 with the multi-award-winning Canadian film 'Just Eat It' on Saturday, February 4 at QCC. The film asks why – as a society that devours cooking shows, foodie blogs and culinary magazines – we persist in chucking 50% of our food into the trash?
Filmmakers and avowed foodies Jen and Grant follow the food waste trail from farm, through retail, all the way to the back of the fridge. In a nation where one in ten people face food insecurity, the images they capture of squandered groceries are shocking yet strangely compelling. They quit grocery shopping cold turkey and pledge to live only on foods that have been discarded. Embracing food rescue for survival turns out to have surprising consequences!
Join us for this documentary described as 'smart and snappy' and 'educational, entertaining, and potentially life changing.' Feb 4, QCC.
