DIVE! Living off of America's waste

'DIVE! Living Off America's Waste' is a poignant, and at times humorous, essay on American food waste and a rallying cry against the hunger crisis in the USA. Everyone in North America should see this film,' says

Wasting one half of our food

Join us in the Behavior Sciences Building, Room 131 for DIVE! -- a film that follows a group of dumpster divers or "urban foragers" as they reevaluate the role of food in a society that wastes 1/2 of all it produces.  

Inspired by a curiosity about our country's careless habit of sending food straight to landfills, the multi award-winning documentary DIVE! follows filmmaker Jeremy Seifert and friends as they dumpster dive in the back alleys and gated garbage receptacles of Los Angeles' supermarkets.

In the process, they salvage thousands of dollars worth of good, edible food - resulting in an inspiring documentary that is equal parts entertainment, guerilla journalism and call to action.

"This must-see documentary is an eye-opening look into the ­billions of pounds of food that is thrown out each year in the U.S." writes the Bermuda Sun.

Discussion will follow. Sponsored by Residence Life.
