Global Waste: The Scandal of Food Waste

In the summer of 2011, a TV network based in Paris (CAPA Television) came to the U.S. to shoot part of a documentary on global food waste and ways of dealing with it. Part of the production was with a Harvest of Hope camp on the Virginia Eastern Shore. We coordinated with producer Maha Kharrat. The French documentary runs 90-minutes. A version for British TV runs 54 minutes. Here are some versions of that footage.
