‘We all love food. As a society, we devour countless cooking shows, food magazines and foodie blogs. So how could we possibly be throwing nearly 50% of it in the trash? Filmmakers and food lovers Jen and Grant dive into the issue of farming waste, through retail, all the way to the back of their own fridge. Featuring interviews with UK based TED lecturer, author and activist Tristram Stuart Just Eat it! reveals the core of this seemingly insignificant issue that is having devastating consequences around the globe.’
