Campus Kitchen Movie Night: Food Waste

Share:

January 31, 2018

5:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.

Ballroom, Student Union, McNichols Campus

Campus Kitchen at Detroit Mercy is partnering with the Detroit Food Policy Council to host a FREE movie night and panel discussion about food waste.

Forty percent of all food produced in the United States is wasted each year, while 1 in 6 Americans lack consistent access to adequate amounts of healthy food. Just Eat It (2014) explores the issue of food waste and food rescue from farm to retail to fridge.

Following the film screening, local leaders from the restaurant, distribution, educational and policy sectors will discuss current efforts to reduce food waste in Detroit. This film and discussion will be a particularly exciting learning opportunity for students interested in the environment, supply chain management, social enterprise, ethics or political science. (The filmmakers even created an interdisciplinary curriculum and discussion guide!)
