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.
