Event description
Join Project Zero and the Food Eco District for a screening of Wasted! The Story of Food Waste, followed by a panel discussion.

About this Event

In British Columbia, nearly 40% of the food we purchase is going to waste.

Join Project Zero and the Food Eco District for a screening of the documentary Wasted! The Story of Food Waste, followed by a panel discussion. After the film we look forward to localizing the conversation and addressing how food waste is currently being tackled. We hope to shed some light on this growing issue and discuss actions we can take with in our communities and within our own homes to reduce food waste.

Schedule:

6:00 pm - doors open

6:30 pm - film screening

8:00 pm - panel discussion

Come hungry, pizza and beverages will be available for purchase. We will also be raffling off several food waste prevention starter kits.

Tickets will be $13 at the door, be sure to buy your tickets early!

We are so excited to have the following expert panelists join us for the evening:

- Jaik Johnston of Truffles Catering and Wanna Be Chef Consulting, the incredible chef responsible for the award-winning tacos at our Harvest Fiesta this past September.

- Marika Smith, the Sustainable Waste Management Specialist with the City of Victoria & former Executive Director of the Victoria Compost Education Centre.

- Megan Chan, a UVic student studying environmental studies and geography, this is her third year with the UVic Community Cabbage, a group that serves a free weekly hot meal to the campus community prepared from rescued food.

- Daisy Orser, a co-owner of THE ROOT CELLAR | village green grocer, who offer the largest selection of produce on Vancouver Island, locally prepared and locally sourced foods in addition to ethically raised meats.

- Toni Desrosiers, founder of Abeego's reusable beeswax wraps, which protects & breathes like nature's peel & rind and helps to preserve longer than any other product on the market.

All proceeds will go towards maintaining FED’s edible gardens around town so that we can continue to beautify our streets and inspire more urban agriculture in the city and beyond!
