CASA Fundraiser: Reducing Food Waste, Movie Night + Reception
October 17, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm$25
Wasted food is one of the biggest contributors to climate change. Over 40% of what is produced in the U.S. is wasted. The impacts are felt in wasted water, wasted transportation, wasted energy, wasted landfill space, and increased carbon dioxide and methane emissions. In fact, if wasted food was a country, it would be the third largest producer of carbon dioxide in the world, after the United States and China. To address this critical issue (and enjoy some surplus food and wine), CASA will show the award-winning film Just Eat It, celebrate local organizations that are working to reduce food waste, and hear from a panel of experts, including former NRDC staff scientist Dana Gunders, about what you can do to stop wasting food. Featured in the film, Dana is a leading national expert on food waste reduction, the author of the NRDC issue paper “Wasted: How America Is Losing Up to 40 Percent of Its Food from Farm to Fork to Landfill” as well as the how-to book “Waste-Free Kitchen Handbook: A Guide to Eating Well and Saving Money By Wasting Less Food.” Dana will be joined by San Francisco star chef Nick Balla of Bar Tartine and Duna fame and passionate food waste warrior, and Tara Duggan, James Beard award–winning journalist, food waste educator and author of “Root-to-Stalk Cooking: The Art of Using the Whole Vegetable.”
Please join us for a memorable evening on Wednesday, October 17th in the Grand Ballroom at the Elks Lodge 2255 Santa Clara Avenue, Alameda 94501.
