Food Fighter – Movie Screening
Ronni Kahn used to run a successful corporate events company producing million dollar dinners. Then she realised the absurdity of throwing away perfectly edible food and decided that she would make a difference by founding OzHarvest – one of Australia’s largest food rescue groups.
Now, she’s taking on politicians and big business to expose an inconvenient truth: that four million tonnes of edible food is discarded in Australia every year while up to two million Aussies suffer from food insecurity. And to add insult to injury, this food waste ends up in landfill, harming the environment by creating greenhouse gas emissions.
Filmed over two years and across four continents, ‘Food Fighter’ follows Ronni’s crusade as she partners with the United Nations, rubs shoulders with royalty and Jamie Oliver’s juggernaut, rifles through dumpster bins and holds government to account. Kiwi Harvest an offshoot of OzHarvest now operates in Auckland, Dunedin, the Hawkes Bay and now Queenstown.
