Join Bountiful Brookline and the Brookline Public Schools Food Services Department at a public event to mark the fifth annual National Food Day. This day seeks to promote real food and to increase awareness of food issues and food access across America.
We will feature a screening of the film “Just Eat It” an entertaining, yet compelling exploration of food waste from field to landfill. Check out the trailer @ www.bountifulbrookline.org!
Following the film a panel of local experts representing food production, sales, procurement and recovery will discuss the impact of food waste on hunger, resources and the environment.
