Post-screening voluntary discussion on ways to get involved in creating real change in food sustainability on campus

One of the Sustainability Office's fall events at Southern Oregon University includes a screening of Just Eat It, A Food Waste Story from 6-8pm on November 16. This film event is hosted by the Ecology & Sustainability Resource Center.

Filmmakers and food lovers Jen and Grant dive into the issue of waste from farm, through retail, all the way to the back of their own fridge. After catching a glimpse of the billions of dollars of good food that is tossed each year in North America, they pledge to quit grocery shopping cold turkey and survive only on foods that would otherwise be thrown away. In a nation where one in 10 people are food insecure, the images they capture of squandered groceries are both shocking and strangely compelling. But as Grant's addictive personality turns full tilt towards food rescue, the "thrill of the find" has unexpected consequences.
