Wasted! The Story of Food Waste aims to change the way people buy, cook, recycle, and eat food. Through the eyes of influential chefs like Anthony Bourdain, Dan Barber, Mario Batali, Massimo Bottura, and Danny Bowien, audiences will see how they and their peers 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 how each of us can make small changes—all of them delicious—to solve one of the greatest problems of the 21st century.

Special guests on Sunday, Nov 19 at 4pm: Join us for a post-screening discussion with chefs and activists working to address food waste in Hawai‘i. Moderated by Jennifer Milholen of Kōkua Hawaiʻi Foundation.
The discussion will be followed by a waste-free reception in Luce Pavilion with food by EAT Honolulu. Menu to come.
