Wasted! The Story of Food Waste (Film)

Every year, 1.3 billion tons of food is thrown out. That’s $218 billion worth of food produced for human consumption that never gets eaten. With one-third of the world's food being thrown away even before it reaches the plate, Wasted! sheds new light on what is food and what is garbage. Through the eyes of chef-heroes like Massimo Bottura, Dan Barber, and Danny Bowien, we see how the world’s most influential chefs battle food waste—transforming what most people consider garbage, scraps, and rejects into incredible dishes that feed more people, impact the bottom line, and create a more sustainable food system. Wasted! also showcases forward-thinking organizations and individuals who are already influencing the future of food recovery and demonstrating how eating empowers you, in the fight to solve one of the greatest problems of the 21st century: global food waste. Wasted! The Story of Food Waste will change how you buy, cook, and eat food.
