Sustainable Dunn and UW-Stout's Sustainability Office are hosting the screening of the documentary film Taste the Waste at UW-Stout's Harvey Hall on Tuesday, Jan. 22, at 7 p.m.
The film examines the reasons for and implications of wasted food. European households throw away 100 billion Euros worth of food each year, which is as much as the annual turnover at Nestlé, the world's largest food corporation. The food thrown away in Europe would be enough to feed all the hungry people in the world two times over.
The event is free and open to the public, as part of the Food for Thought Film Series co-sponsored by UW-Stout's Ally Initiatives, Center for Applied Ethics, University Library and area businesses and organizations.
