Just Eat It

I’ve been working the Hot Docs Festival, a documentary film festival in Toronto, and I was very happy to see that Just Eat: A Food Waste Story, was consistently sold out. Although I didn’t personally get to see the film (as I was working each time it screened) I did get to read the description, hear the buzz from festival goers, and see the trailer. After learning that millions of dollars worth of good food gets tossed every year, filmmaking team Jen and Grant to attempt “food rescue” and prove something about North America’s relationship with food. The documentary is from the same director/producer team who did The Clean Bin Project in 2010, which documented a year living zero-waste. justeatit3   justeatit Hopefully it will be picked up by Netflix or screened at the TIFF Bell Lightbox or the Bloor Cinema, as they usually try to pick up the documentaries that do particularly well at festivals. If you get a chance to see it, and you’re interested in food waste, the American culture, or just good documentaries in general, then give it a watch– I certainly will. justeat-copy
