Doylestown Food Market will present the first feature of its annual Farm Fresh Film Series at 7 p.m. on March 10, at the County Theater, in Doylestown. Just Eat It, a documentary about food waste, traces the experiences of the filmmakers, who, after learning of the billions of dollars’ worth of food that is tossed out each year in North America, pledge to quit grocery shopping and survive only on foods that would otherwise have been thrown away.
Just Eat It is presented in partnership with the Bucks County Foodshed Alliance and caring community sponsors. The goal of the Farm Fresh Film Series is to present relevant, food-related films that engage and inform. Each screening is followed by a panel discussion and audience talkback.
The expert panel for Just Eat It will feature Steven M. Finn, a sustainability and supply chain leader and managing director at ResponsEcology, and Cathy Snyder, Founder and Executive Director of Rolling Harvest Food Rescue. The Market is planning a food waste awareness campaign in tandem with the screening, where attendees will have the chance to make a personal commitment to reducing their waste.
Upcoming films in the Farm Fresh Film Series will be June’s Tapped, about the effects and consequences of our reliance on plastic water bottles, and November’s Ground Operations: From Battlefields to Farmlands, about veterans becoming farmers.
Location: County Theater, 20 E. State St., Doylestown. Tickets: $8/$10, available at County Theater, Doylestown Food Market or online at Doylestown.coop. March 2016.
