WASTED! THE STORY OF FOOD WASTE screens for one night only at the Dundee Theatre on Wednesday, February 21st at 7:00 p.m.
Film Streams is partnering with Saving Grace Perishable Food Rescue and No More Empty Pots to present the film.
Patrick Kinney, Communications Director for Film Streams, says before the film starts, guests may order items from Kitchen Table Central that are made from rescued food.
Kinney says the food will be offered at pay-it-forward pricing which allows patrons to choose how much they pay.
He says the event is part of Film Streams’ community development program.
The program allows Film Streams to partner with fellow nonprofits on screenings that are beneficial to both organizations’ missions.
"So it’s a way to really use the power of film to reach new audiences but also to spread ideas and new experiences. This is a prime example of how we are partnering with nonprofits to deal with very different things like food waste and food insecurity. But we get to come together through film to discuss these issues and have a good time and an interesting conversation.”
Kinney says there will be a panel discussion following the film screening. Leaders from No More Empty Pots, Saving Grace Perishable Food Rescue, the Grey Plume and Kitchen Table will attend.
Tickets are available through the Dundee Theater box office at 402-933-0259.
