Just Eat It: A Food Waste Story
February 24, 7 p.m.
Overby Center Auditorium
The University of Mississippi’s annual Spring Environmental Film Series continues February 24, at the Overby Center with Just East It: A Food Waste Story. The series, which includes three films, captures the spirit of resource stewardship and addresses the major environmental issues facing society.
Just Eat It: A Food Waste Story is a powerful documentary about the management of food resources in the United States. Food waste in US is going unnoticed by the public, but the amount of food being wasted too massive to ignore. Just Eat It illuminates the full weight of the nearly 50% of edible food that is discarded every year. From the mass disposal of edible, but mispackaged food, to slightly bruised or too large bananas, this film sheds light on one of the biggest issues of our time that everyone seems to have missed. Just Eat It: A Food Waste Story is a revelatory look into American food waste and the increasingly problematic food industry.
The Environmental Film Series is sponsored by the Environmental Studies Minor, Southern Documentary Projects, the Office of Sustainability, the Strawberry Plains Audubon Center and the Ole Miss Birders.
