Join one woman's crusade to end food waste.
Ronni Kahn used to be a collaborator in Australia’s annual $10bn food waste bill when she ran a successful corporate events company.
Then she realised the absurdity of throwing away good food, and abandoned capitalism in favour of social activism, launching the food rescue company OzHarvest, and even winning 2010 Australian of the Year - Local Hero.
Now, she’s taking on politicians and big business in a gamble to expose a scandalous truth: that four million tonnes of edible food is discarded every year while up to two million Australians suffer from food insecurity.
Waste Nation is a feature documentary, to be released in late 2017, that follows Ronni’s journey across Australia and the globe as she aims to bring an end to this dirty secret.
Each year, families waste this much on discarded food.
Australians suffer food insecurity and hunger.
Australia's annual food waste bill.
“Someone has grown that food.
And that's taken water and energy and power.
To reject that food is inhumane.”
— Ronni Kahn, FOunder Oz-Harvest
