Movies @ NCL: WASTED! the Story of Food Waste

June 10, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Location: Lamb Room

(Encore presentation)

In memory of Anthony Bourdain, New Canaan Library and Planet New Canaan join in presenting a special screening of WASTED! the Story of Food Waste. Anthony Bourdain was passionate about food and travel; his work around the world made him a strong supporter of eliminating food waste and conserving our resources. He, and other iconic chefs, make the point deliciously in this fascinating documentary.


WASTED! The Story of Food Waste aims to change the way people buy, cook, recycle, and eat food.  Through the the eyes of chef-heroes like Bourdain, Dan Barber, Mario Batali, Massimo Bottura, and Danny Bowien, audiences will see how the world’s most influential chefs make the most of every kind of food, transforming what most people consider scraps into incredible dishes that create a more secure food system. Wasted! exposes the criminality of food waste and how it’s directly contributing to climate change and shows us how each of us can make small changes – all of them delicious – to solve one of the greatest problems of the 21st Century. (90 minutes)

In partnership with Planet New Canaan.
