As part of our Food & Climate Action Project, we are putting on a series of Food & Climate films in partnership with Take One Action Film Screenings!

Join us for the second of four free film screenings. This time we are showing Just Eat It, an inspiring film about the consequences of the billions of tons of food that we throw away every year.

"After catching a glimpse of the billions of dollars of good food that is tossed each year in North America, food lovers Jen and Grant pledge to quit grocery shopping and survive only on what would otherwise be thrown away.But as Grant’s addictive personality turns full tilt towards food rescue, the ‘thrill of the find’ has unexpected consequences. Just Eat It looks at our systemic obsession with expiry dates, perfect produce and portion sizes, and reveals the core of this seemingly insignificant issue that is having profound consequences around the globe."

Film will start at 17.30, please arrive and be seated before this time. Feel free to bring your own food and drink!

There will be an audience discussion after the film.

There is also an accompanying free cooking demonstration, led by Donna Borokinni from Happy Cooking, happening straight after the film screening, which can be booked separately here.
