Since 1998, Second Helpings has rescued more than 28 million pounds of food from wholesalers, groceries and restaurants, using that food to prepare and deliver more than 10 million meals to partner agencies across Central Indiana. We believe that waste is wrong. Whether it’s food, money or people, we strive to put all resources to their best use and potential. We value rescued food as the raw material that fuels our hunger relief and culinary job training programs. We identify and solicit priority food items to ensure a stable food supply to support our program goals. We are excited to partner with Heartland Film to raise awareness around the critical issue of food waste.
About the film:
Every year, 1.3 billion tons of food is thrown out. That’s $218 billion worth of food produced for human consumption that never gets eaten with one-third of the world’s food being thrown away even before it reaches the plate. It’s time to shed light on what is food and what is garbage. WASTED! The Story of of Food Waste is a feature-length documentary that will change how people buy, cook, and eat food. Through the eyes of chef-heroes like Massimo Bottura, Dan Barber and Danny Bowien, we’ll see how the world’s most influential chefs battle food waste – transforming what people consider garbage, scraps, and rejects into incredible dishes that feed more people, impact the bottom line, and create a more sustainable food system.
