About Just Eat It - A Food Waste Story

As part of Stirling Food Assembly's 1st birthday celebration we've organised an exclusive screening of this award winning film which will be accompanied by an optional pay-as-you-feel light vegetarian lunch of intercepted food served up by The Real Junk Food Project - Edinburgh. This screening will be held at CodeBase, Municipal Buildings, 8-10 Corn Exchange Road, FK8 2HU Stirling, an exciting new tech hub offering co-working, incubation and more.

We all love food. We devour countless cooking shows, culinary magazines and foodie blogs. So how could we possibly be throwing nearly 50% of it in the bin?

Filmmakers and food lovers Jen and Grant dive into the issue of waste from farm, through retail, all the way to the back of their own fridge. After catching a glimpse of the billions of dollars of good food that is tossed each year in North America, they pledge to quit grocery shopping cold turkey and survive only on foods that would otherwise be thrown away. In a nation where one in 10 people is food insecure, the images they capture of squandered groceries are both shocking and strangely compelling. But as Grant’s addictive personality turns full tilt towards food rescue, the ‘thrill of the find’ has unexpected consequences...

Featuring interviews with TED lecturer, British author and activist Tristram Stuart and acclaimed author Jonathan Bloom, Just Eat It looks at our systemic obsession with expiry dates, perfect produce and portion sizes, and reveals the core of this seemingly insignificant issue that is having devastating consequences around the globe. Just Eat It brings farmers, retailers, inspiring organizations, and consumers to the table in a cinematic story that is equal parts education and delicious entertainment.

Virtual tickets for the film are available via the online market at https://thefoodassembly.com/en/assemblies/8259
Lunch will be provided on a pay-as-you-feel basis on the day.
