Wasteful Thinking (online doc premiere)

With the world’s population projected to hit seven billion later this  year, a stable supply of food has never been more important.

Recent spikes in food prices have set off riots around the world and  have been linked to revolutions in the Middle East and the famine  devastating the horn of Africa. Even here at home, rising food prices are making people think more  about what they eat and where it comes from.

But what people may not realize is just how much of the food we  produce is going to waste.

The documentary, Wasteful Thinking, takes a close look at the food  system in Quebec from the grocery store to the phenomenon of dumpster  diving and the growing demand at Quebec’s food banks.

  • Great job! Very informative for those who need to wake up as well as for those who want to contribute to making a difference. I almost wept yesterday when I found out that the local bakery locks its dumpster so no one can take the huge bags of bread they throw out every day. Something is wrong when we feel it necessary to lock up our throwaway food!
