Since food is a daily part of our lives, food is a valuable issue and should be a priority for everyone. According to Project Drawdown, when we think of the causes of global warming, fossil fuel use most often comes to mind. Less obvious are the consequences of our breakfast, lunch and dinner.
From Farm to Fork – food, agriculture, and land use are responsible for 24% of the heat trapping greenhouse gases in our atmosphere today. That means that the foods we choose to eat can have a major impact on the environment.
The following ingredients influence our collective “food” footprint: the types of food we eat, the way food is grown, the way food is processed, how food is transported, the way food is stored, how food is packaged, how and where food is sold, how food is cooked, and how food waste is disposed of (FoodPrint.org).
How can we make food choices that are better for us and our planet?
Join Gratitude for Food on Monday March 27th at the Palgrave United Community Kitchen for our first lunch and learn – Chili n’ Chat! We will be serving up a delicious Red Lentil Chili (plant-based and gluten free) along with dessert. Participants will also get a chance to chat about food related climate solutions such as: plant-rich diets, reducing food waste, regenerative agriculture and composting.
We can all do our part to reduce our “food” footprint!
