From Anna Chai and Nari Kye - One of the perks of working with Anthony Bourdain and on shows like “The Mind of a Chef” is that you come in contact with a lot of chefs. Being in their worlds, their restaurants, and their kitchens, we see close-up what makes these people tick and also what boils their blood. Time and again, food waste was something that chefs railed against.
Enter The Rockefeller Foundation. With their support, we started doing research and quickly realized that while America happens to be the worst offender, food waste is a global problem. Every year, 1.3 billion tons of food is thrown out. There is $218 billion worth of food produced for human consumption that never gets eaten and yet, and there are 800 million people around the globe who are starving.
In addition to the chefs who are battling food waste, we were excited to discover so many solution-oriented individuals and organizations doing impactful work all over the world. A film emerged, featuring stories of success that will hopefully show the audience that any action -- no matter how small -- can lead to new ways of feeding more people, curbing environmental damage, stimulating technology and business, and ultimately improving the health and well-being of all citizens.
So, why should we care about food waste? Food waste is one of the few problems that is potentially fixable! Join us at Potluck Food Rescue on Thursday, July 26 for a special screening of Wasted! The Story of Food Waste.
At The Canopy Apartments in Little Rock, Arkansas, we believe it’s important to integrate yourself into the community, which is why we suggest attending this event. Meeting new people, having unfamiliar experiences, and joining neighborhood activities is the key to an exceptional lifestyle.
