Wasted: The Story of Food Waste (2017)

  • Documentary
  • 1h 25m

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 Anthony 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 how it’s directly contributing to climate change 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.

“Inverts the usual eco-doc formula, spending only enough time on problems to establish their importance, then traveling around the world to prove how satisfying the solutions can be.” — Hollywood Reporter

“Taking a lively approach to an increasingly serious 21st century issue, the skillfully assembled documentary WASTED! THE STORY OF FOOD WASTE proves as eye-opening as it is mouth-watering.” — Los Angeles Times
