Berlin Bistro, a favorite casual dining destination in Long Beach’s eclectic East Village neighborhood is partnering with the Art Theatre and DINE LBC – Long Beach Restaurant Week, in bringing attention to the very important issue of edible food waste and to raise vitally needed funds for local non-profit Food Finders food rescue organization. The benefit on March 6th is a special screening of the highly-praised documentary, “Just Eat It. A Food Waste Story” followed by a specialty multi-course “Root -to-Stem” lunch created by Berlin Bistro’s chef, Tim Balen.
It’s a sad fact that 40 per cent of fresh food produced in America ends up in a landfill. This is perfectly good, edible food.
Chef Tim and the Producer of DINE LBC – Long Beach Restaurant Week, Terri Henry, join us with the 411.
