FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
FareShare South West are proud to announce a special screening on the 12th October, 7pm, at The Cube Multiplex in Bristol of the documentary Wasted/Wanted, directed by Wendy Zakiewicz, which looks at the work of the volunteers behind the scenes at the charity.
The purpose behind Wasted/Wanted is an empathetic and compassionate insight into the individuals, who help to redistribute good quality food from going to waste, from the struggle in their own lives in relation to coming from mental health and rehab services. Guests at the event will also be treated to several other screenings of films that support the causes of food sustainability, including a showing of the ‘Feeding the 5000’ campaign back in 2012, directed by Tim Short from Tagiatelly.
Following that, a Q&A session will allow the viewers to ask CEO of FareShare South West, Jacqui Reeves, and Wasted/Wanted Director, Wendy Zakiewicz about the subjects addressed from the films. Canapés will be served from FareShare SW, with a contribution made from Community Farm.
Commenting on why FareShare SW let the cameras in, Jacqui Reeves said “It’s sometimes hard to explain what we do and how we help individuals. A film always shows the hidden outcomes, the feelings and behind the scenes relationships”
FareShare South West is a registered charity that works with the food industry to redistribute quality, fit for purpose, surplus food to a network of organisations working with vulnerable and disadvantaged people. Through food deliveries, community organisations such as hostels, day centres and luncheon clubs are able to make significant savings on their food budgets which can then be redirected into improving services for their clients, such as drug rehab, medical services, housing advice and training.
