Roughly 40 percent of food goes to waste in the United States. The average family of four throws away $1,500 worth of food every year. This waste results not only in less money in the pockets of American consumers, but also less food available to those who are hungry. On top of all this, food waste wreaks havoc on the environment.
Join us as we come together on Thursday, October 20th for a screening of "Just Eat It: A Food Waste Story," a documentary about global food waste that the New York Times calls "spunky" and "startling". Metro Caring will host the screening at the Sie FilmCenter. Doors open at 6:45 p.m. and the screening begins at 7 p.m. Attendees will be able to purchase both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages as well as concessions.
