Our film screening has been postponed due to weather. JUST EAT IT is now showing at QCC on Saturday February 11 at 7:30pm (doors open at 7).
This multi-award-winning Canadian 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 11, QCC, doors open at 7pm, film starts at 7:30. Admission by donation, lots of great desserts, tea and coffee as usual!
