The film, "Just Eat It: A Food Waste Story," a documentary about a couple who survive on food intended to be thrown away, will be screened at 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 22, at the Community Hall in Portola Valley.
There will be free coffee, wine and snacks to accompany the film, according to a town statement.
Seemingly insignificant matters such as food expiration dates, a preference for picture-perfect food, and portion sizes add up to a global problem that results in 50 percent of food going uneaten, according to the film website.
This 74-minute examination of an alternative to grocery shopping includes scenes of dumpster diving, according to the trailer.
The film is directed by Grant Baldwin and produced by Jenny Rustemeyer.
