Comfort Film and VittleWise Chicago present a screening of

Just Eat It!: A Food Waste Story (2014)

Director: Grant Baldwin
Runtime: 75min
Media: Digital Projection

"We all love food. As a society, we devour countless cooking shows, culinary magazines and foodie blogs. So how could we possibly be throwing nearly 50% of it in the trash? Filmmakers and food lovers Jen and Grant dive into the issue of waste from farm, through retail, all the way to the back of their own fridge. After catching a glimpse of the billions of dollars of good food that is tossed each year in North America, they pledge to quit grocery shopping and survive only on discarded food. What they find is truly shocking." --IMDB

About VittleWise:
At VittleWise, we are helping low-income individuals in Chicago acquire the knowledge, skills and tools needed to create stronger and more resilient communities through food. Many low-income communities struggle with receiving proper nutrition because of limited resources, finances, education, or access to food. Our goal is to eliminate these barriers through our food education and access programs.

We help individuals, particularly those from low- and moderate-income communities with, better access to healthy food, meal planning, money saving tips when grocery shopping, and cooking classes. We create resources such as cookbooks and guides for individuals living in low-income housing areas who are dealing with specific food limitations. Our current resource is the Microwave Meals cookbook that uses commonly donated ingredients and a microwave to create well-balanced, cheap meals.
