Food Waste

The City of Palmdale is hosting a special screening of the documentary “Dive!” on Wednesday, March 16, 2016 at 2 pm at the Chimbole Cultural Center, located at 38250 Sierra Highway in Palmdale.

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.

Seating is limited. Interested persons are encouraged to RSVP by calling 661/267-5300 or emailing foodwaste@cityofpalmdale.org.
Doors open at 2 pm. The movie will begin at 2:30. Following the movie will be a panel discussion on local solutions to the problem.
