Description

On October 17th (5:30-8:30pm), please join CASA for our 2018 Annual Fundraiser focused on the very important topic of Reducing Food Waste in our homes, our businesses and throughout our lives.

This year's event will feature “Just Eat It”, an award-winning documentary film that looks at our systemic obsession with expiration dates, perfect produce and portion sizes, and reveals the core of this seemingly insignificant issue that is having devastating consequences around the globe.

The film will be preceded by a book signing + reception, and followed by a panel discussion featuring:

  • Dana Gunders: Former NRDC staff scientist and a leading national expert on food waste reduction, the author of the NRDC issue paper “Wasted: How America Is Losing Up to 40 Percent of Its Food from Farm to Fork to Landfill” and the how-to book “Waste-Free Kitchen Handbook: A Guide to Eating Well and Saving Money By Wasting Less Food” (she is also in the film!!)
  • Nick Balla: San Francisco star chef of Bar Tartine and Duna fame, and passionate food waste warrior
  • Tara Duggan: James Beard award–winning journalist, food waste educator and author of “Root-to-Stalk Cooking: The Art of Using the Whole Vegetable”

5:30 pm - Book Signing & Reception
6:30 pm - Feature Film
7:45 pm - Speaker Panel & Discussion
