The Irvington Theater Commission will host an exclusive screening of the documentary WASTED! The Story of Food Waste as its premiere event of the first-ever Irvington Theater Environmental Festival. The film will be followed by a panel discussion with Director Nari Kye and prominent food waste experts from Westchester Federated Conservationists, Feeding Westchester, Greenburgh Nature Center, Second Chance Foods and Sustainable Materials Management. The festival will continue on October 24-25 with a weekend of exceptional film, presentations and discussions.
The film, narrated and produced by the late Anthony Bourdain, exposes the criminality of food waste via chef heroes like Dan Barber, Mario Batali, Massimo Bottura, and Danny Bowien. It explores reasons for the 1.3 billion tons of food that is thrown away each year and shows how the world’s most influential chefs make the most of every kind of food, transforming what most people consider scraps into incredible dishes that create a more secure food system.
Following the film, Director Kari Nye will discuss the film and provide an insider’s view of how the film was made. A panel of local Westchester experts (see below) will join Kari to discuss with the audience some of the main precepts of the film along with solutions for handling food waste:
