Just Eat It: A Food Waste Story | Documentary Screening @ The Hive Saigon

Another great free screening of "Just Eat It: A Food Waste Story"

We're teaming up with La Holista Co., Ltd. again to screen a documentary that is related to all counties and all of us.

We all love food. As a society, we devour countless cooking shows, culinary magazines and foodie blogs. So how could we possibly be throwing nearly 50% of it in the trash?

- Doors Open at 5:30 pm
- Screening starts at 5:50pm

(Film Synopsis) - 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 is 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.
