Not a Planet South Bank event, but might be of interest to you?
There is to be a screening of the film, Full Bins, Empty Bellies, Lonely Lives on 17 March, at the University of York. https://www.york.ac.uk/students/news/2017/full-bins/
The film explores three themes: food waste, food poverty/insecurity, and loneliness. It also looks at how these three issues can be, and are being tackled.
There will be a panel of guests talking after the film, and then the floor will be free to ask questions about the topics raised in the film. The guests are as follows:
• Natalie Bennett, the former Leader of the Green Party who features in the film. She is also the Green Party candidate for Sheffield Central.
• Jess Causby, a volunteer at Yourcafé, the local branch of the Real Junk Food Project, which is a worldwide group/collective who all work to reduce food waste by making lovely, tasty, healthy food (which is also cheap!) out of items that would have otherwise just gone in the bin.
• Laura Chalmers, the project manager of the York Foodbanks, which handed out over 3,000 food parcels last year (https://york.foodbank.org.uk/).
Donations will be taken for the York Foodbanks.
The film is at 18:00 in P/L/002, University of York, on 17 March, and free tickets are available on Eventbrite. (To find the venue, type P/L/002 into the Room Code Search at https://www.york.ac.uk/about/maps/campus/)
