WASTED! The Story of Food Waste aims to change the way people buy, cook, recycle, and eat food. Through the eyes of chef-heroes like Anthony Bourdain, Dan Barber, Mario Batali, Massimo Bottura, and Danny Bowien, audiences will see how the world’s most influential chefs make the most of every kind of food, transforming what most people consider scraps into incredible dishes that create a more secure food system. WASTED! exposes the criminality of food waste and how it’s directly contributing to climate change and shows us how each of us can make small changes – all of them delicious – to solve one of the greatest problems of the 21st Century.
A panel discussion and audience Q&A will follow the screening. This event's panelists include:
Lindsey Loberg, Program Director, Boulder Food Rescue
Lindsey Loberg first learned about Boulder Food Rescue in 2013 from their hometown in Milwaukee, WI in an unexpected web search result. In 2014, they became a very excited BFR courier volunteer, and since 2015, they have directed BFR's programmatic work. They are perennially enamored with BFR, the people that make BFR happen, participant-run food distribution, community-led food systems, and food as a community-building and advocacy tool. In their spare time, Lindsey cooks two queer community meals, serves on Boulder's Human Relations Commission, and volunteers with a transgender rights advocacy group. They play catcher on their softball team, where, consistent with their leadership style, they can see the big picture and shout encouragements to teamates. They are currently learning to speak Spanish and to ask before petting every dog they meet.
Arlan Preblud, Founder and Executive Director, We Don't Waste
Arlan developed a compassion for those in need through his experiences as a practicing attorney for over 40 years, and in volunteering with various local non-profit organizations including Urban Peak, Outward Bound West, Fresh Start, and as a Board Member of the Riverfront Park Community Foundation. He founded We Don’t Waste in 2009 to increase food security and reduce food waste. As Executive Director, he is committed to expanding its reach to serve vulnerable populations. Arlan's participation as a panelist marks his return to the eTown stage after he won an eTown eChievement Award in September of 2015.
