Discours d'Arash Derambarsh au TEDx Los Angeles devant 3000 personnes au Dolby Theatre (Hollywood Boulevard).

Arash Derambarsh shares in this talk how he identified the cause of food waste in his native France, and after many efforts managed to get a law adopted forcing supermarkets to donate unwanted food to charity.
His talk is a personal narrative of how he came to realize the paradox of food waste and hunger and to understand what hunger meant.

Arash Derambarsh is a councilor in France, whose campaign against food waste led to a law forcing French supermarkets to donate unwanted food to charity has set his sights on getting similar legislation passed globally.
