Just Eat It- A Food Waste Story

We all love food. As a society, we devour countless cooking shows, culinary magazines and foodie blogs. So how could we possibly be throwing nearly 50% of it in the trash? Filmmakers and food lovers Jen and Grant dive into the issue of waste from farm, through retail, all the way to the back of their own fridge. After catching a glimpse of the billions of dollars of good food that is tossed each year in North America, they pledge to quit grocery shopping and survive only on discarded food. What they find is truly shocking.

The wrong side of town, endless roads traveled, longing for home, and the hope for love. These are the themes that find their way into much of Tom Savage’s songwriting. Tom has devoted the past twenty years to the creation of songs. Waiting for them to come to him or dragging them out of the ether kicking and screaming. Letting them linger on the edges of his psyche until they are just right, or scribbling them down on the page with reckless abandon. Ten minutes from the seed of an idea to a finished product. Every song is different and is meant to serve a purpose and tell a story.
