Rethinking Food Waste
Come and join Mayor Heintzman for a discussion over a tasty breakfast that will be made from grocery store donations of foods nearing the end of their shelf life. There is no charge to attend.
In our homes, many of us are generally quick to throw out or compost food that is “past its best”.
This zero waste-themed breakfast aims to raise awareness about how we approach cooking and food in our day-to-day lives, and encourage participants to rethink how their own perceived food waste can be transformed into healthy and delicious meals. Local chef Gregg Van Hierden will work magic using the grocery store donations with the goal of inspiring all of us to take a second look in our refrigerators and pantries before we throw food into the compost bin.
Inspired by the immense amount of food waste that is generated every day, this discussion will no doubt be a spicy one!
