Free Educational Screening of “Just Eat It” on Oct. 20

The City of Tacoma, as part of the Preventing Wasted Food campaign and in honor of National and World Food Days, will offer a free screening of the film “Just Eat It.” The family-friendly event is from 7- 9 p.m. on Oct. 20 at the University of Washington Tacoma’s Carwein Auditorium (1754 Commerce St., Tacoma).

“Just Eat It” explores our systemic obsession with expiry dates, perfect produce and portion sizes and reveals that wasted food is having devastating consequences around the globe.

The film looks at food waste from farm, through retail, to the back of your fridge. After food lovers Jen and Grant catch a glimpse of the billions of dollars of good food tossed into the garbage each year in North America, they pledge to quit grocery shopping and survive only on discarded food.

A brief discussion will follow the film, and light refreshments will be provided.

For more information contact Project Specialist Emily Campbell at (253) 591-5172 or email her at ecampbell@cityoftacoma.org.
