What if every time you opened your wallet, a third of your cash fell out – and you did nothing about it? Consider the fact that one-third of the food grown annually for human consumption is never eaten – for one reason or another, it ends up in the garbage. In the U.S., that’s $218 billion – or 1.3 billion tons – of food annually. Yet at the same time, 800 million people around the globe are starving. It’s a problem – but one with no shortage of solutions.

Wasted! The Story of Food Waste aims to solve the problem of food waste by changing the way people buy, cook, recycle, and eat food. The world’s most influential chefs demonstrate how to make the most of every kind of food, transforming what most people consider scraps into incredible, delicious dishes that create a more secure food system.

Starring chefs like Anthony Bourdain, Dan Barber, Massimo Bottura, and Danny Bowien, the documentary shows how even small changes can lead to new ways of using more food, feeding more people, curbing environmental damage, stimulating technology and business, and ultimately improving the health and well-being of all citizens worldwide.
