Film Reel Image

The City of Modesto’s Solid Waste Division is partnering with the Stanislaus County Department of Environmental Resources in hosting an America Recycles Day event on Monday, November 15, 2021 at the Historic State Jewel Theatre in Downtown Modesto. We will be showing the award-winning environmental film, "Just Eat It" Free of charge at 11:30am, 3:30pm and 5:30pm.  Seating is limited and reservations are required.  

Just Eat It is a documentary film about food waste and food rescue. We all love our food! As a society, we watch countless cooking shows, read culinary magazines and foodie blogs. So then, how is it possible that we throw away almost 50% of edible food in the trash? This film uses humor to dive into the issue of waste from farm, through retail, all the way to the back of what’s in the refrigerator. In a nation where one in 10 people are food insecure, the images they capture of squandered groceries are both shocking and compelling. 

See the journey the film stars take towards food rescue and the “thrill of the find” and the results have very unexpected consequences.
