WASTED! THE STORY OF FOOD WASTE
Film: 4:30 pm, Sunday, September 10 Location: Cinema Art Theater, 17701 Dartmouth Drive, #2, Dartmouth Plaza, Lewes map
Every year 80% of the world’s water, 40% of the world’s land, and 10% of the world’s energy is dedicated to growing the food we eat, yet in the same year 1.3 billion tons of food is thrown out. That’s a third of all food grown around the world being wasted before it even reaches a plate.
WASTED! The Story of Food Waste sheds a light on the pressing issue of food waste. Executive Produced by author and chef Anthony Bourdain, the film doesn’t simply focus on the problem, but offers solutions like reorienting consumer perspectives on the food that is normally cast aside, and what changes we can make to our food production chain to create a more sustainable food system.
The dinner that follows the screening will demonstrate that we can enjoy a delicious meal as we learn how eating can empower us to help solve food waste, a world-wide challenge.
Dinner: 6:00 pm, Sunday September 10
Location: Margaret H. Rollins Community Center(111 Adams Ave, Lewes – map)

Delaware’s ocean use is growing rapidly, with massive new ships, soaring demand for offshore sand mining, and proposed wind energy development offshore. Our busy waters are also home to endangered whales and sea turtles, and support thriving fishing and recreation industries. It’s more important than ever that we plan ahead for responsible ocean growth.
Join us for the Delaware premiere of Ocean Frontiers III. This hopeful film explores the challenges at the heart of ocean conservation and development, presenting solutions from a range of people who are leading the way to a healthy and sustainable ocean future.
