One-third of the world’s food is thrown away, while hundreds of millions of people go undernourished. We’ve invited five of the world’s most renowned chefs to present their unique visions on how to tackle these wrongs inherent in our current food system during a lively round-table debate.
The panel discussion will be followed by an exclusive screening of “Theater of Life”. This film explores the story behind the Refettorio Ambrosiano, a soup kitchen conceived by chef Massimo Bottura for the Milan 2015 World’s Fair to turn food waste into meals for those in need.
Food for Soul, the non-profit organization founded by chef Massimo Bottura, promotes social awareness about food waste and hunger through a wide range of initiatives in collaboration with chefs, artisans, food suppliers, artists, designers and institutions.
$5 from each ticket will go to Food Forward, an LA non-profit that rescues fresh local produce that would otherwise go to waste.
