​

*Abstract*

*Eating out*, a major trend in *Metro Manila*, relates to food waste. Since
meanings of food waste change when people eat out, people have a role to
play when they order food. Yet, the service sector could also make a more
important contribution to reducing food waste. We show two examples in the
film: a restaurant in Manila, and a cafeteria of the Ateneo de Manila
University.



*Eating in* also relates to food waste. In the middle-class homes of
*Bangalore*, food waste is linked to traditions of household food
consumption that involve notions of freshness and use of leftovers, as well
as presence of domestic helpers.



In view of these eating practices, what are the challenges and
opportunities for socially just and environmentally sound food consumption?



*The films are part of the research dissemination plan of a study on food
consumption practices in Metro Manila and Bangalore involving researchers
of the Institute of Philippine Culture (IPC) of the Ateneo de Manila
University and the **Industrial Ecology Group at the University of
Lausanne.*



*A discussion after the film viewing will be moderated by IPC researchers,
Ms Abigail Marie T. Favis (Department of Environmental Science/Ateneo
Institute of Sustainability) and Dr. Czarina Saloma-Akpedonu (Department of
Sociology and Anthropology).*
