The Mount Kisco Interfaith Food Pantry to Screen “Wasted! The Story of Food Waste”

Date/Time

07:00 PM until 10:00 PM

Description

The Mount Kisco Interfaith Food Pantry, an affiliation of 13 faith-based congregations dedicated to providing supplemental food to the under-served in northern Westchester, and the Food Bank for Westchester, will be hosting an exclusive pre-release screening of the film “Wasted! The Story of Food Waste” on Wednesday, September 13 at 7 pm at the Mount Kisco Bow Tie Cinema. 

There will be a VIP cocktail and hors d’oeuvres reception being held immediately following the screening at Exit 4 Food Hall, across the street from the theater. All proceeds from the film and the reception will benefit The Mount Kisco Interfaith Food Pantry and the Food Bank for Westchester.

A featured film at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival, “WASTED! The Story of Food Waste,” sheds light on the pressing issue of food waste. Executive-produced by author and chef Anthony Bourdain and featuring renowned chefs Dan Barber, Mario Batali, Massimo Bottura and Danny Bowien, the film aims to change the way people buy, cook, recycle, and eat food. “WASTED” doesn’t simply focus on the problem of food waste, but offers solutions such as reorienting consumer perspectives on the food that is normally cast aside, and changes that can be made to the food production chain to create a more sustainable food system.

“It is stunning that so much food is wasted while our neighbors continue to struggle to put food on the table,” said Laura Desmarais, President of The Mount Kisco Interfaith Food Pantry. “We are pleased to be partnering with the Food Bank for Westchester to share this important film celebrating the extraordinary innovations addressing this issue and to inspire local awareness and action.”

The screening of “Wasted!” is one of several local events marking Hunger Awareness Month, a national initiative held annually in September to draw attention to food insecurity. To learn more about other local Hunger Awareness events, please contact Lena Cavanna at lc5889@optonline.net

The Mount Kisco Interfaith Food Pantry depends on its nearly all-volunteer workforce and is committed to creating a healthier and stronger community for all. Each year, more than 190 of our northern Westchester neighbors donate their time to supporting the Pantry. On average, the pantry serves 270 households each week, offering free high-quality grocery staples ranging from fresh produce, dairy, eggs and bread to non-perishables and frozen meat and fish.

The Pantry is located in the United Methodist Church in Mount Kisco. To learn more about The Mount Kisco Interfaith Food Pantry, please visit www.mountkiscofoodpantry.org
