Wasted! The Story of Food WasteThe Food Policy Council of Johnson County  presents a community screening of Wasted: the Story of Food Waste (licensing provided by After the Harvest).

From the Johnson County Library website, “Johnson County has a generally affluent population yet food waste and food insecurity are problems here. According to a study from The Food Policy Council of Johnson County, food waste here is estimated at about 1.6 million pounds annually, valued at approximately $7 million. During the past five years it has been estimated that 11.6 percent of Johnson County households experienced some kind of food insecurity.

Plenty of seating will be available. For an extra-comfy viewing experience, bring your blankets and lawn chairs. Refreshments will be provided.”

Information about additional screenings and food insecurity programming at the Johnson County Library here.
