Anthony Bourdain & Danny Bowien

The two chefs talk world hunger with Kim Severson

Watch award-winning author, TV host, producer and former chef, Anthony Bourdain, and James-Beard winning chef and Co-Founder of Mission Chinese, Danny Bowien, discuss one of the most pressing issues of our time, global food waste, with Kim Severson, a Southern-based correspondent for The Times.

“WASTED! The Story of Food Waste” is a feature-length documentary that will change how people buy, cook and eat food. Every year, 1.3 billion tons of food is thrown out. That’s $218 billion worth of food produced for human consumption that never gets eaten. With one-third of the world’s food being thrown away even before it reaches the plate, it’s time to shed new light on what is food and what is garbage. This event was presented in collaboration with The New School Food Studies Program.
