oin the Historic Lewes Farmers Market and the Rehoboth Beach Film Society on Sunday, September 10 for a special pre- Rehoboth Beach Independent Film Festival showing of Wasted!

Every year, 80% of the world's water, 40% of the world's land, and 10% of the world's energy is dedicated to growing the food we eat, yet, in the same year,1.3 billion tons of food is thrown out. That's a third of all food grown around the world being wasted before it even reaches a plate.
Wasted! The Story of Food Waste
sheds a light on this pressing issue. Produced by Anthony Bourdain, the film doesn't simply focus on the problem, but offers solutions like reorienting consumer perspectives on the food that is normally cast aside. It also looks at what changes we can make to our food production chain to create a more sustainable food system.
The dinner that follows the screening will demonstrate that we can enjoy a delicious meal as we learn how eating can empower us to help solve food waste.
