Film screening “Waste cooking”

About the film

David, a journalist who aims at rescuing foods, travels through five countries in Europe by a kitchen car, which runs on waste oil. He travels by cooking waste foods. We live in a consumption society, in which we waste tremendous amounts of foods everyday. According to the World Food Programme, we discard about one third of produced foods, which amounts 89 million ton in Europe or 1.3 billion ton in the world every year. David meets many people who tackle food problems in unique ways. He serves them dishes made from waste foods, through which he tries to change the awareness of people about food.
