Join us every 3rd Friday this Summer for outdoor documentary screenings at Feed & Be Fed Farm is San Pedro, CA.

Our final documentary selection in the summer series is «Just Eat It.» We all love food. As a society, we devour countless cooking shows, culinary magazines and foodie blogs. So how could we possibly be throwing nearly 50% of it in the trash?

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.

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.

The gates open at 7:30, movie at 8:00. Discussion following.

We will have limited chairs and blankets available for use, so please bring your own if you have them. Feel free to bring a picnic dinner or snacks and non-alcholic beverages to enjoy during the film.

Thanks to our sponsor, AltaSea at the Port of Los Angeles, all funds raised from the screening will go back into the garden to help grow more food for the local community and offer more educational programming. Suggested donation of $7 per adult, $10 per family.
