“My father was a war child and knew what food scarcity was, so it was normal for him to eat everything.”
The two-part documentary, which is broadcast on the Danish channel DR1, focuses mainly on Marie. She and chef Timm Vladimir set out to teach students about food waste. The cameras also follow Marie at home. She has been committed to the fight against food waste for years.
