DIVE! Living Off America’s Waste
Screening and Panel Discussion

Monday, Oct 17 at 6pm
Loosemore Auditorium,
Downtown Pew Campus , GVSU

Grand Valley State University is screening the documentary, Dive! Living off America’s Waste as part of the GVSU Campus Sustainability Week activities.

The film’s website says, “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.”

After the screening, there will be a panel discussion featuring Timothy Vatterott, the film’s composer and producer, as well as:

  • Lisa Oliver King and Inez Adams, from Our Kitchen Table
  • Elianna Bootzin of Feeding America West Michigan
  • Emma Rosauer of Access of West Michigan

The screening is free and open to the public. Watch the trailer:
