Just Eat It

April 20, 2016, 7:00 PM

Free

Check out the movie trailer here!

Did you know that 40% 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% of which is organic material.

NRCM's Sustainable Maine project helps individuals, communities, and the State adopt practical, effective measures to conserve and protect Maine’s natural resources, now and for future generations. We are committed to helping address the massive food waste problem as it relates to human and environmental health and economic sense.

We will have a discussion of the film and what each of us can do to address the massive problems associated with food waste.

Please join us to see this incredible film and learn what we can do!

Hosted by the Natural Resources Council of Maine and the Colby Environmental Coalition.
