Wasted! The Story of Food Waste

The Gold Coast International Film Festival presents Wasted! The Story of Food Waste. From executive producer Anthony Bourdain, the film aims to change the way people buy, cook, recycle, and eat food. Through the eyes of chefs like Bourdain, Dan Barber, Massimo Bottura, and Danny Bowien, you 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.

Join us for a screening of the film and a discussion of food waste – how it’s directly contributing to climate change and how we can all make small changes to solve one of the greatest problems of the 21st Century.

A Q&A panel follows the film with:

  • Randi Shubin Dresner, President and CEO of Island Harvest
  • New York State Senator Todd Kaminsky
  • New York State Assemblyman Steve Englebright
  • Kendrick Repko, MS, RD, Brand Lead, Sustainable Retailing, Stop & Shop
