Food Fighter

October 13 @ 4:00 pm - 6:15 pm

Thailand_Bruno Kataoka_B41A9432

Ronni Kahn used to be a contributor to Australia’s annual $20 billion food waste bill when she ran a successful corporate events company producing million-dollar dinners. Then she realised the absurdity of throwing away perfectly edible food, trading capitalism for social activism by founding OzHarvest, a food rescue charity, in 2004.

Filmed over two years and across four continents, Food Fighter follows Ronni’s crusade against the global food waste scandal as she partners with the United Nations in Bangkok, rubs shoulders with British royalty and crosses swords with Jamie Oliver’s juggernaut in London, and holds big business and the government to account in Australia.

Making Waves: Rebirth of the Golden Rule

In 1958, a little boat set sail on a big mission: stop nuclear testing. When the crew was arrested, public outcry sparked a movement. Sixty years later, the Golden Rule sails for peace once again.
