SOLD OUT!!! Wasted! The Story Of Food Waste

Sorry, this event is SOLD OUT!
A Reel Ruminations Event of the Emory Food Studies & Ethics Program

Thursday, January 24, 2019

6:00 pm         Pre-Film Food Tasting

6:30 pm         Film Screening     

8:00 pm         Panel Discussion 

The Center for Ethics, in conjunction with Slow Food Atlanta, invites you to a free screening of WASTED! The Story of Food Waste. A pre-film food tasting will showcase plates from Miller Union and Wrecking Bar, and a discussion with an illustrious panel will follow the screening.

Narrated by executive producer Anthony Bourdain, WASTED! exposes the criminality of food waste and how it directly contributes to climate change. Regional cuisine and food preparation was often a key aspect of his series Parts Unknown. Bourdain was passionate about the problem of food waste. He said, “It’s obscene that we’re dumping knowingly, or through neglect, 40% of our total food production straight into the  garbage.”  While he was reluctant to be viewed as an advocate or an activist, he said in the film “I’m pretty sure about this. This is not good. Waste is bad. We can all agree on that.”

This event is the first in a series called “Reel Ruminations,” presented by Emory’s nascent Food Studies & Ethics Program. Jonathan K. Crane, Raymond F. Schinazi Scholar of Bioethics and Jewish Thought at the Emory Center for Ethics, believes that “Communities and corporations are actively seeking the next generation of creative, ethically-knowledgeable, data-capable, health-minded, sustainability-concerned innovators and leaders.” The Food Studies & Ethics Program seeks to give students the tools to become these innovators and leaders via a multidisciplinary study of the  theoretical and practical, communal and individual, social and biomedical aspects of food and eating.

The screening is made possible by Slow Food Atlanta and Steven Satterfield, James Beard Award winning chef and co-founder of Miller Union. Says Satterfield, “Food waste is an problem that we can all help solve. This film not only brings the issue to light, but provides inspiration as to how we, as individuals, can work to waste less food.”  

A post-film panel discussion will feature: 

  • Steven Satterfield, a James Beard award-winning chef, is the executive chef and co-owner of Miller Union, a celebrated, seasonally-driven restaurant located in Atlanta’s Westside neighborhood.

  • Robert del Bueno is managing partner of Southern Green Industries, a biofuel feedstock processor and provider.

  • Jasmine Crowe, the founder of Goodr—an app that fights hunger through addressing food waste management.

  • David Paull, co-founder of CompostNow, has been an entrepreneur in the composting industry for the past 7 years, running a compost collection service as well as working on the sides of processing and regulatory change in Atlanta.

  • Michelle Wiseman/Natasha Dyer, City of Atlanta, Office of Resilience

  • Jonathan K. Crane, Raymond F. Schinazi Scholar of Bioethics and Jewish Thought at Emory University’s Center for Ethics

Reel Food • "Chocolat"

Talk about a winning recipe: the primary ingredients of Lasse Hallström's whimsical tale include Juliette Binoche, as a single mother who moves to a tiny French village in the 1960s; Johnny Depp, as a riverboat-dwelling drifter; and, yes, a certain sweet, cacao-based substance that wins over the closed hearts of all those stuffy petits-bourgeois. Hmmm, we wonder why this was a hit?
