About

Welcome to the film that takes on an incredible challenge. Can we solve world hunger by redistributing wasted food?

"The Hunger Code" - a simple question with a complex answer. We're shooting a documentary to find out why we waste so much food and how it could be shared out among the needy. This is one hell of a challenge, so LA based company "Across the Pond Inc" has joined forces with UK company "Beauforts Films"

The Film as a Journey:

Starting in the UK, the journey will take us to the USA where the history of food banking will be examined. We’ll be interviewing experts and travelling round the world to film examples of different food rescue models in operation. We will meet the people working on the front line and hear their stories. Whether it’s redistributing a buffet in Beirut or seeing volunteers glean fields, this is about grass roots action on a global scale.

At the centre of the film is the Big Question: How do we stop wasting vast amounts of food across the planet and instead use it to feed the hungry?

Then there’s the Bigger Question: How do you get it there? OK, so the bad news is that 860 million people are hungry. Now for the good news - less than 25% of all the food wasted on the planet would lift all of them from malnourishment. 

But matching the two is a massive challenge…. and that’s where film making meets the power of software!   

Creativity beyond Film: 

As part of the documentary, we want to examine whether an internet based global logistics system would help redistribute food sustainably. We’ll be interviewing Blue Chip companies to see how realistic it would be to create such a network. 

Creativity is not just about the Arts – it’s about daring to think big, and “The Hunger Code” will throw down a challenge to some of the best minds in computing. 

We’ll be asking them to address the same issues that the film will explore: 

  • How can we cut down food waste? 
  • Is it possible to redistribute wholesome, edible food without creating a negative social or environmental impact? 
  • What about hungry people in our own countries? (Yes, they do exist - in greater numbers than you would imagine) 
  • How do you get it there? 
  • How do you get it there without disrupting or damaging local economies?  

We believe that a film has to do more than just raise awareness – and we know you agree. Join us! Find out more by visiting our website www.thehungercode.com

Risks and challenges

There are always risks with filming a project. However, both companies (Across the Pond Inc and Beauforts Films) have significant experience in this sector. We will carry appropriate insurance against all the usual hazards, and we have allowed enough time within the budget to create a really powerful, inspiring documentary.
