We all love food. So how could we possibly be throwing nearly 50% of it in the trash?

After catching a glimpse of the billions of dollars of good food that is tossed each year in North America, food lovers Jen and Grant pledge to quit grocery shopping and survive only on what would otherwise be thrown away. But as Grant’s addictive personality turns full tilt towards food rescue, the ‘thrill of the find’ has unexpected consequences. 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 profound consequences around the globe.
Plus Panel Discussion

We are delighted to be partnering with the University of Edinburgh and Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation to present this award-winning documentary Just Eat It, which explores the issue of food waste –  a huge sustainability challenge facing society.

Following the film, there will be panel discussion with Hannah Milne, Senior Waste Project Officer (Love Food Hate Waste), Changeworks; Christopher Somerville, Manager of FareShare Project, Cyrenians; Alexis Heeren, Projects Coordinator, Department for Social Responsibility and Sustainability, University of Edinburgh (CHAIR); and a representative from Food Sharing Edinburgh. This will be an opportunity to ask questions and share your insights on the film and food sustainability in Scotland.
