Synopsis

In 2015, one in six Americans experienced hunger while over 40% of food produced in the USA went uneaten. The film follows eight innovative food rescue initiatives across the USA. From prison farms and grocery store donations delivered solely by bicycle, to gleaning from Harvard University dining halls, these go-getters encourage a new generation of creative responses to ending hunger and shrinking landfills. Their focus is on morphing discarded healthy food into nourishment. Seed & Sprout asks: can ordinary people end hunger in America by redistributing a small percentage of the wasted food flooding our food system and dumping grounds?
