Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger
 

Food for Thought

Dive Courtesy of Bread's own "Green Team," staff members recently watched the documentary Dive: Living Off America’s Waste, which showed filmmaker Jeremy Seifert and his friends plunging into dumpsters across Los Angeles. They scored thousands of dollars of completely edible food. Why? It’s easier for grocery stores to throw it away, rather than get it to hungry people. Yet a mere 1 percent of the discarded food would have supplied L.A. food banks with all they needed to make up their deficits for the year.

 

If you haven't seen the film, check it out and tell us what you think.

 

Next up in Bread’s Green Film Festival: Dirt! The Movie: A Story with Heart and Soil, which includes interviews with environmental activist Vandana Shiva and Wangari Maathai, Nobel laureate and founder of the Green Belt Movement.
