Fight Climate Change in Your Kitchen
Adult Enrichment / Curious Minds -
Americans waste a staggering amount of food—about 40%. Learn about the impact of food waste on the environment and climate change as we discuss ways to reduce the amount we waste both as individuals and as a community. Discover how to determine which foods that are past their prime can still be consumed rather than discarded, and learn how to prepare meals with these items that might otherwise be wasted. Cook along with the instructor or simply watch and learn how to use stale bread and overripe pears or other fruit in your pantry to prepare muffins and bread and butter pudding. Hosted by a member of Food Link who will describe the important work they do and how you might get involved. Co-sponsored by Food Link, a food rescue non-profit in Arlington and the Arlington Chamber of Commerce.
Food Link is a community organization that rescues fresh food, alleviates hunger, and contributes to environmental sustainability. We envision a food system without waste, in which everyone has enough.
