Phipps' Environmental Film Series is an exciting monthly event inviting community members to come together to view environmental films and documentaries. May will be featuring the documentary, Just Eat It! about filmmakers and food lovers Jen and Grant who 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.
