About the Film
"Wasted! The Story of Food Waste" aims to change the way people buy, cook, recycle and eat food. Through the eyes of chefs like Anthony Bourdain, Dan Barber, Massimo Bottura and Danny Bowien, audiences will 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.
The film also exposes how food waste directly contributes to climate change and shows how each of us can make small changes, such as using excess food to feed the hungry, to solve one of the greatest problems of the 21st century.Learn more about the film.
