Just Eat It + Junk Food Cafe

Thursday 6th April, 2017

Flatpack Hub (Old) | 19:30 - 21:30

In a world restricted by expiry dates, how much food do we waste in the name of perfection?

Concerned by a growing epidemic of food waste, two Vancouver-based filmmakers set themselves the challenge of living entirely on discarded food for a year. Delving deep into our obsession with expiry dates and perfect bananas, Just Eat It is a thought-provoking journey that will have you questioning the contents of your own fridge.

This screening is presented in association with Birmingham’s Real Junk Food Project, a volunteer-run scheme delivering pop-up cafes and ‘Freegan boxes’ across the city. Tonight’s menu is made entirely from food intercepted on its way to the bin, and is offered on a pay-as-you-feel basis.
