Follow filmmaker Jeremy Seifert and his circle of friends as they dumpster dive in the back alleys and gated garbage receptacles of L.A.’s supermarkets. In the process they uncover thousands of dollars worth of good food and an ugly truth about waste in America: grocery stores know they are wasting and most refuse to do anything about it.
“Dive! Living Off America’s Waste is a poignant, and at times humorous, essay on American food waste and a rallying cry against the hunger crisis in the USA – everyone in North America should see this film.” -GreenMuze.com
