WASTED! THE STORY OF FOOD WASTE | 2017, 85 minutes
Tuesday, April 24 | 6:30pm
Lowell National Historical Park Visitor Center
246 Market Street, Lowell
Join us for the FOURTH film of our 2018 Eco Film Series!
From Executive Producer Anthony Bourdain comes Wasted! The Story of Food Waste, a groundbreaking new documentary that aims to change the way people buy, cook, recycle, and eat food. Through the the eyes of chef-heroes like Bourdain, Dan Barber, Mario Batali, Massimo Bottura, and Danny Bowien, audiences will see how the world’s most influential chefs make the most of every kind of food, transforming what most people consider scraps into incredible dishes that create a more secure food system. WASTED! exposes the criminality of food waste and how it’s directly contributing to climate change and shows us how each of us can make small changes – all of them delicious – to solve one of the greatest problems of the 21st Century.
Please join us as after the film for a food waste discussion led by students from Lowell High School!
