WASTED! The Story of Food Waste - Sustainable SM Film Series

7 pm

Location:  Aero Theatre, 1328 Montana Ave

WASTED! The Story Of Food Waste aims to change the way people buy, cook, recycle, and eat food. Through the the eyes of chef-heroes 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. WASTED! exposes the criminality of food waste and how it's directly contributing to climate change and shows us how each of us can make small changes - all of them delicious - to solve one of the greatest problems of the 21st Century.  A Panel discussion featuring experts in the field will follow the screening.

Admission is free to Santa Monica residents + Sustainable Works members.  To register, click here >
