Time to consider some fundamental changes in your life? Time to think more globally, and act locally! Eat your way to better health AND reduce your carbon footprint.
Scientists overwhelmingly agree that human activity is warming the earth. Heat is being trapped in a layer of �greenhouse gases,� including carbon dioxide, produced by the fossil fuels we use, including those fuels we use to grow and transport our food to market. How much �carbon footprint� is in the food you eat? Come on November 16th and find out. Learn how to choose food that protects the environment and:
� feed children successfully
� create menus with variety
� get enough protein
� address gluten-intolerant diets
� eat organically and inexpensively.
Please come on November 16th, 2008 and hear Jill Ovnik speak about eating better and reducing your carbon footprint.
