Launching the Pulitzer Center's partnership with City Colleges of Chicago, grantee Karim Chrobog brings his film about the global problem of food waste called "Wasted: USA & South Korea," to three city colleges in Chicago.

He speaks to culinary and media students at Kennedy King College on Tuesday, October 25, 2016. He also presents a campus-wide lecture at Harry S Truman College and speaks to microbiology students at Harold Washington College on Wednesday, October 26, 2016.

For the two-part documentary, Chrobog visited two cities — Washington, D.C., and Seoul, South Korea — to examine why so much food goes to waste and what can be done about it. Washington, and the U.S. as a whole, has taken only minor steps to reduce this enormous waste and its related human and environmental costs. By contrast, Seoul has adopted innovative programs to minimize the amount of food that ends up going to landfills to rot.

Chrobog is an award-winning filmmaker, most recently honored with bronze recognition by the Telly Awards for "Wasted."
