Award Winning Documentary About Stopping Food Waste To Be Screened In 13 Locations Nationwide

An award winning documentary, “Just Eat It: A Food Waste Story”, will be shown across 13 locations in Ireland, as part of Stop Food Waste Week taking place January 22nd to 28th.

Just Eat It, by Grant Baldwin and Jenny Rustemeyer, sees filmmakers and food lovers Jen and Grant dive into the issue of food waste, at the farm level, across the food chain, and all the way to the back of their own fridge.

After catching a glimpse of the amount of good food that is wasted each year in North America, they pledge to quit grocery shopping and survive only on discarded food. What they find is a truly shocking insight into the global food system that we are all part of.

While the film is based in North America, it aims to raise awareness on this global environmental dilemma affecting us all.

The 13 locations nationwide are as follows:

Tickets are €5 and can be pre-booked via the number provided for each screening location. All proceeds will be donated to The Society of St. Vincent de Paul.

The film screenings form part of Stop Food Waste Week which aims to promote the message “Food – Make the Most of it”. This social media based campaign will focus on the main foods commonly thrown away, and how to make the most of them. Throughout the week Stop Food Waste will provide tips and advice on how to store and cook various food, and have developed a handy resource, the ‘A – Z of Food’.
