      Screening of documentary "Just Eat It" & Panel discussion: decrease food waste at restaurants & food services

      In British Columbia, 40% of food produced & distributed never gets eaten. This inefficient use of resources generates avoidable:

      ECONOMIC COSTS: $49 billion is wasted annually in Canada. New Research shows 7:1 ROI for Restaurant Food Waste Initiatives

      SOCIAL COSTS: when 1 Vancouverite in 9 is food insecure

      ENVIRONMENTAL COSTS: recent research shows that reducing food waste is the 3rd most impactful solution to climate change.

      Join Rethink2gether for a screening of the documentary Just Eat It: a Food Waste Story, from farm to fork.

      The film will be followed by a panel discussion, addressing how food waste is currently being tackled, with a focus on restaurants & food services.

      The film will be followed by a panel discussion, with speakers from Rethink2gether, The City of Vancouver, Food Mesh, LOOP Mission & Taeyoung Chang from Kitch/in Collective.
