The Zeitgeist Toronto chapter announces the screening of the documentary Taste the Waste by Valentin Thurn .A documentary about the worldwide destruction of food. Why do we throw away so much? And how can we stop this kind of waste?
Amazing but true: On the way from the farm to the dining-room table, more than half the food lands on the dump. Most of it before it ever reaches consumers. For instance every other head of lettuce or potato.
We are talking about perfectly edible food that gets pulled off supermarket shelves, some of it still in the original packaging with the 'best before'/'sell by' date not yet expired! The store can no longer make a profit on it. So it lands in the trash.
Pay What You Can .
The movement created to combat food waste.
