Owatonna Library Coordinates with Food Shelf for Indie Film About Food Waste

Just Eat It

This Tuesday, March 15 at 2 pm & 7 pm, the documentary Just Eat It will be shown at the Owatonna Public Library in conjunction with the Steele County Food Shelf. The film is this year’s “Hunger Film Fest” featured film, and it is being presented during the Steele County Food Shelf’s - March Food Share Month activities.

We all love food. As a society, we devour countless cooking shows, culinary magazines and foodie blogs. So how could we possibly be throwing nearly 50% of it in the trash? Just Eat It is a 74-minute documentary film about food waste and food rescue by Peg Leg Films in partnership with British Columbia’s Knowledge Network.

Consider joining others in the community to learn more about causes of hunger (food insecurity) locally and nationally as well as our community’s effort at food recovery. Come for information, fellowship, and discussion.
