NYSAR3 Food Recovery Campaign:
The New York State Association for Reduction, Reuse, and Recycling (NYSAR³) is leading a state-wide Food Recovery Campaign to reduce wasted food, redirect surplus food to hungry New Yorkers. This is in keeping with the top tiers of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s food recovery hierarchy. The Campaign strives to engage stakeholders across the state to better understand the root causes of wasted food and to collaboratively develop strategies for source reduction and donation. We are happy to support showings of Wasted across New York State. To get involved in the Campaign, visit http://www.nysar3.org/page/food-recovery-121.html and contact one of the working group chairs.
WASTED! THE STORY OF FOOD WASTE aims to change the way people buy, cook, recycle, and eat food. Through the eyes of chef-heroes like Bourdain, Dan Barber, Mario Batali, Massimo Bottura, and Danny Bowien, audiences will see how the world’s most influential chefs make the most of every kind of food, transforming what most people consider scraps into incredible dishes that create a more secure food system. WASTED! exposes the criminality of food waste and how it’s directly contributing to climate change and shows us how each of us can make small changes – all of them delicious – to solve one of the greatest problems of the 21st Century.
