FOOD FIGHTER is the inspirational story of one Australian woman’s crusade against the global scandal of food waste. On 7 June it will be released in Event and Village Cinemas.
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.
OzHarvest is now Australia’s leading food rescue organisation, collecting over 100 tonnes of good food every week and delivering it to more than 1300 charities, making a positive impact on the lives of vulnerable men, women and children.
Filmed over two years and across four continents, FOOD FIGHTER follows Ronni’s crusade against the global food waste scandal, partnering with the United Nations in Bangkok, rubbing shoulders with British royalty and Jamie Oliver’s juggernaut in London, and holding the government to account in Australia.
Ronni Khan and FOOD FIGHTER director Dan Goldberg begin a series of Q&A screenings around the country on June 7.
