Post-screening discussion on composting and alternative buying sources

The third film in the FLOW 2018 Green Film Festival will be Just Eat It. This documentary will be screened at Ramapo High School on March 15 at 7pm. It is an entertaining look at the culture of excess and our obsession with expiration dates and perfect produce.

Filmmakers and food lovers Jen and Grant dive into the issue of waste from farm, through retail, all the way to the back of their own fridge. After catching a glimpse of the billions of dollars of good food that is tossed each year in North America, they pledge to quit grocery shopping cold turkey and survive only on foods that would otherwise be thrown away. In a nation where one in 10 people are food insecure, the images they capture of squandered groceries are both shocking and strangely compelling. But as Grant's addictive personality turns full tilt towards food rescue, the "thrill of the find" has unexpected consequences.

The Award-Winning Fifth Annual FLOW Green Film Festival is a joint venture of the Franklin Lakes, Oakland, Wyckoff Environmental Commissions, in partnership with the Wyckoff Public Library and the Ramapo High School Green Team.
