Wasted! The Story of Food Waste aims to change the way people buy, cook, recycle, and eat food. Through the eyes of chef-heroes like Bourdain, Dan Barber, Mario Batali, Massimo Bottura, and Danny Bowien, audiences will see how the world’s most influential chefs make the most of every kind of food, transforming what most people consider scraps into incredible dishes that create a more secure food system. WASTED! exposes the criminality of food waste and shows us how each of us can make small changes – all of them delicious – to solve one of the greatest problems of the 21st Century.

Sustainable transportation to and from this event is encouraged! Consider carpooling, taking Pierce Transit bus route 11, or bicycling to this event. Limited parking is available on campus at N. 18th & Lawrence St.
