About The Event
It can be overwhelming as just one person to try to have a positive impact on our environment. A great place to start is with what we eat. How do our choices while shopping for food and while in the kitchen affect the planet? Join us to learn how eating local, organic or plant-based - and what we do with food waste - impacts on our carbon footprint. Get localized tips specifically for living and eating sustainably in NCW.
