UNITY — A free screening of the film “Wasted!” is scheduled for 6 p.m. Monday, Feb. 12, at 69 School St.

Every year 1.3 billion tons of food is thrown away, according to a news release from Rachel Deiden. The film explores the reasons for this waste and ways to fix the problem. “Wasted!” aims to change the way people buy, cook, recycle and eat food.

Through the eyes of Anthony Bourdain, Dan Barber, Mario Batali, Massimo Bottura and Danny Bowien, audiences can see how the world’s most influential chefs make the most of every kind of food, transforming what most people consider scraps into incredible dishes that create a more secure food system. The film exposes the ways that food waste is contributing to climate change and can show viewers how they can make small changes to solve one of the greatest problems of the 21st Century.

There will be a potluck at 5:30 p.m., followed by the film and discussion. Those who can are asked to bring a side dish, salad or dessert to share for the potluck.

Donations will be accepted to support the work being done by Unity Barnrasiers and Maine Farmland Trust’s Veggies For All project.
