UN in your language

tastethewasteOn the occasion of World Food Day, UNRIC in partnership with Brot fur die Welt and the World Food Programme invites you to the screening of:


Thursday, 13 October - 6:30pm at the Goethe Institute Brussels.

CINE-ONU presents the BELGIAN PREMIERE of the new eye-opening documentary Taste the Waste. The film reveals the shocking truth about global food waste. In fact, about half of all food globally produced ends up being thrown away, while some four billion people live in a state of constant food emergency. About 10% of household waste is still-edible food: every second head of lettuce, every other potato--ends up in the bin.

The film will be followed by a Q&A with:

Valentin Thurn (Director)
Roger Waite (Spokesperson for Agriculture & Rural Development, European Commission)
Christine Van Nieuwenhuyse (Director of the World Food Programme in Brussels)
Michael Hansmann (Brot für die Welt)

The film will be screened in English and has a runtime of 90 minutes.
