Feeding People In A Time of Climate Change and Covid 19

April 22, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Feeding People in a time of Climate Change and Covid 19

Recording : Link

Lori Fontanes offers a look at the relationship of climate, COVID-19 and food, including practical advice on eating better for the planet and people. Thi

s program includes an introduction by Sustainable Westport Chair, Peter Boyd, and a soft-launch of the Sustainable Westport Zero Food Waste Challenge, with emphasis on food waste reduction, home composting and food rescue.

Lori Fontanes is a writer and community advocate. Her work on agriculture and the environment has appeared in publications such as Backyard Poultry, Countryside, Acres, Grit and EcoWatch.

In these trying and uncertain times, we think the topic of food waste is more important than ever. Food insecurity, scarcity and waste are issues of great concern and we can all do something about it.

Registration Required.  This is a FREE event, but space is limited to the first 100 registrants. A recording of the event will be available afterward.


How much can YOU reduce your wasted food in the next 6 months? By half?! Set a goal and aim for it!
Please join the conversation and take the Challenge!
With your participation, we hope to reduce Westport’s residential food waste by 25%!
