*New Date* Dive! Living Off America's Waste - Outdoor Movie Fundraiser

In celebration of 2013 as the Year of Food Waste Prevention and Recovery, Austin Sierra Club will host a fundraiser featuring a screening of Jeremy Seifert's award-winning documentary Dive! Living off America's Waste on Wednesday, February 20 at an innovative zero waste grocer called in.gredients. Local beer and wine will be on tap, as well as a selection of in-house and locally prepared foods/baked goods. Local leaders will speak on the issue of zero waste and food waste prevention.

Filmmaker Jeremy Seifert has a unique survival strategy: he feeds his family, including his adorable toddler son, by dumpster diving for food that's been discarded by supermarkets all over Los Angeles. Night after night, he finds more completely good, still fresh, still packaged meat and produce than he can possibly use, and he winds up organizing food drops to local soup kitchens that feed the needy.
This is a timely film that will make you think twice about your own grocery needs and excesses, and the wastefulness of the markets where you do your shopping or dumpster diving.

Donations of $10 at the door.

NOTE: This is an *outdoor* event and will be re-scheduled in case of rain

    This is an outdoor venue so everyone dress for the weather. I'll wear a warm jacket and will take it off it needed. Just the jacket, don't be alarmed.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
