The Emerson will play host to the showing of Wasted! The Story of Food Waste, produced by Anthony Bourdain. Many famous chefs are featured in the documentary and this showing is a benefit for the Gallatin Valley Food Bank.

  • WHEN: Sunday, November 12th at 6:30 PM - 9:30 PM
  • WHERE: Emerson Center for Arts and Culture (111 S Grand Ave)
  • TICKET INFO: (tickets $8 - $10)

The event is part of GVFB’s annual Can the Griz food drive and proceeds will go toward supporting the local food bank.

GVFB will also be collecting donations in the lobby before and after the film, and attendees are urged to bring a can of food to donate.

Wasted world-premiered at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival to widespread critical acclaim.

“You need to watch this documentary. It might depress you. It might scare you. But I doubt it.

Some environmental issues seem politically blockaded to the point of hopelessness, or insurmountable for any number of reasons.

This documentary is incredibly compelling evidence that we’re looking at an absolutely crazy exception…This film may actually make you care about it, and not by way of sanctimony or self-righteousness or fist-pounding or garbage-shaming—Wasted is super optimistic, full of fantastic food-porn, and oftentimes hilarious..”
