TFF: Food Fighter
OzHarvest CEO Ronni Kahn has enough passion and drive to move mountains – but can she solve Australia’s food waste crisis? Filmed over two years and on four continents, Food Fighter is the inspirational story of one woman’s crusade to save perfectly edible food.
Ronni Kahn used to be a contributor to Australia’s massive annual 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 and decided to prioritise social activism over profit by founding OzHarvest.
Now, she’s taking on politicians and big business to expose an inconvenient truth: that over four million tonnes of edible food is discarded in Australia every year while up to two million Aussies suffer from food insecurity. And to add insult to injury, this food waste ends up in landfill, harming the environment by creating greenhouse gas emissions.
Food Fighter follows Ronni’s crusade as she partners with the United Nations, rubs shoulders with royalty and Jamie Oliver’s juggernaut, rifles through dumpster bins and holds government to account. From the recent death of her daughter-in law to the very recent birth of her first grandchild, Ronni’s personal rollercoaster runs parallel to her meteoric rise as the face of food waste.
Conceding she lacked the “courage” to stay and fight the Apartheid regime in her mother country, Food Fighter also follows Ronni’s road to redemption, an inspirational woman bidding to make peace with her past. In the end, it reveals what sort of individual it takes to effect such profound change globally.
