Farm Fresh Film Series - Just Eat It

Just Eat It, The Film:

Buy your tickets here! 

We all love food. As a society, we devour countless cooking shows,culinary magazines and foodie blogs. So how could we possibly be throwing nearly 50% of it in the trash? 

Filmmakers and food lovers Jen and Grant dive into the issue of food waste from farm, through retail, all the way to the back of their own fridge. After catching a glimpse of the billions of dollars of good food that is tossed each year in North America, they pledge to quit grocery shopping and survive only on discarded food. What they find is truly shocking. 


Just Eat It, Our panel!

Our post film panel includes a world-renowned expert on food waste, Steven Finn and Cathy Snyder, the founder of Rolling Harvest, a local organization that collects donated produce from local farms and markets, and distributes immediately to agencies helping the most needy families in the community. We will be including a campaign with a call to action for how individuals and groups can make a difference.

Cathy Snyder

Founder and Executive Director of Rolling Harvest Food Rescue,  Cathy Snyder was a native Philadelphian working in broadcast sales when she left to live overseas with her family, first in Tokyo, then on to Amsterdam, Taipei, Kuala Lumpur and Louisville until finally coming back home and settling a few years ago in the New Hope, PA area. While always active in local community service wherever she lived, Cathy found herself volunteering at a food pantry in Lambertville, NJ, helping out with the day-to-day operations and interacting with the local, food-insecure and needy population of this otherwise affluent and prosperous tourist area.


This began a personal mission to provide a more balanced, more nutritious choice of foods being distributed to the pantry visitors. Cathy had won a huge, red Ford Excursion SUV at Churchill Downs Racetrack in Kentucky, and started using that truck to go to farm markets and grocers, asking for donations of fresh produce, a commodity in short supply at the food pantry. Years later, she has now branched out to full-time procurement of the freshest, healthiest, locally-grown food. The red Ford has been replaced by two beautiful donated Rolling Harvest Food Rescue delivery vehicles and is just part of the tremendous generosity and support of our local communities!

The remaining films in the 2016 Series are:

June 9 - Tapped, shows the effects on our environment and communities of our use of plastic, disposable water bottles. We will be partnering with Lifefactory, producer of glass water bottles encased in a silicone cover, and a product we carry at the Market. It is also our intent to involve some of our community prior to the film showing.

November 10 - Ground Operations: From Battlefields to Farmlands, will be shown the day before Veteran’s Day. This is an inspirational, award-winning film about veterans becoming farmers. We are looking forward to cementing a partnership with both Del Val University’s farming program for veterans and Rodale Institute for this film.

The goal of the Farm Fresh Film Series is to present important and relevant food and farming topics to the public in a palatable and engaging way. Each screening is followed by a panel discussion, which will offer a range of expert opinions about the film topics and encourage discussion among attendees.
