This week at the library...

It's Book Club week!


MONDAY
Central Library, 6:30 p.m.

Burbank Public Library and the
Burbank Recycle Center present...
A "Live and Learn" Documentary:
JUST EAT IT

Just Eat It is a 74-minute documentary film about food waste and food rescue. 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. Just Eat It brings farmers, retailers, inspiring organizations, and consumers to the table in a cinematic story that is equal parts education and delicious entertainment.

Following the documentary, there will be a discussion led by Clare Fox, Executive Director, LA Food Policy Council.
