Just Eat It - free community film screening

Council’s Waste and Sustainability units in partnership with the Bairnsdale Library are hosting a community film screening of the documentary Just Eat It on Saturday the 1st of April at 6:30pm at the Bairnsdale Library Forecourt (with a wet weather back up plan).

Just Eat It is a critically acclaimed documentary about food waste and food rescue. Just Eat It looks at our systemic obsession with expiry dates, perfect produce and portion sizes, and reveals the core of this seemingly insignificant issue that is having devastating consequences around the globe. The documentary is filmed in North America, though the same alarming issues can be observed in Australia. Every year Victorian households throw away enough food to fill the Eureka Tower. This totals to $4 billion worth of food each year, enough to feed 367,000 families for a year.

Bairnsdale Neighbourhood house will be coming along to make a presentation about their fabulous food rescue program, and those with an overload of home grown produce are invited to bring it along to gift or swap.
We will be having free complementary popcorn available for the duration of the film (bring your own reusable bowl!), This is a free family friendly event.

You can watch the trailer of the film here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zkASAZGIuu0

I think it would be fantastic to have some Councillors attend this event so I would really appreciate you passing it on to them.
