6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Did you know that 40 percent of the food produced for humans in the U.S. is wasted every year? That’s enough to fill the Empire State Building nearly 100 times. Meanwhile, Maine ranks first in New England in terms of food insecurity, including for children, and the State struggles to manage the costs and impact of our municipal solid waste stream, 43 percent of which is organic material.
Join us for a screening of Just Eat It, a documentary film about food waste. HERE’s the trailer.
Following the film, join us for a discussion with Todd Martin from the Natural Resources Council of Maine (NRCM). NRCM’s Sustainable Maine Project is committed to helping individuals, communities, and the state adopt practical measures to address the massive food waste problem because it will help protect our environment and it makes economic sense.
This event is sponsored by the Cape Elizabeth Recycling Committee.
