Everyone is invited to a free film screening of WASTED! The Story of Food Waste. 

Film summary: WASTED! aims to change the way people buy, cook, recycle, and eat food. Through the the eyes of chef-heroes like Anthony 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.

Do you want to help reduce food waste on campus?

Sign up to volunteer with the Food Recovery Network HERE! Through mobilizing the campus community as volunteers, the Food Recovery Network helps to spread hunger and waste awareness among the students, faculty, and town. The Food Recovery Network at UMass facilitates the donation of otherwise wasted food from Worcester dining commons to Craig's Doors Homeless Shelter in Amherst, and from Berkshire Dining Commons to Not Bread Alone and a dinner in Northampton for people dislocated by Hurricane Maria. Most recoveries take less than 30 minutes and are a quick and fun way to help out.

This event is being co-hosted by members of the Food Recovery Network and staff from the Sustainability Departments in UMass Dining and the Physical Plant.
