Food for the Future
February 23 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Every day several times per day we choose what to eat. Have you ever wondered how the food you eat (or throw away) impacts the environment?
Food and the environment are intertwined. How we produce, move, and dispose of food can have environmental impacts like greenhouse gas emissions or the ability to build soil health. On the other hand, climate change is impacting how we hunt, fish, gather and produce food through changes in temperatures on both land and water, and increasingly intense weather patterns.
Join our panelists for a discussion on food, agriculture, and climate change to learn more about your food and the environment.
