Food Choice Series: Fat Facts (2 of 5)

January 15 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Free
Food Choices Series Fat Facts Foods

Free Adult Class! Hosted by Robin Matathias (Adjunct Professor of Environmental Studies at Keene State College). 

Food Choices are a series of classes that explore the connection between our food choices, food production systems, and their impacts, on both human and environmental health. Each day we make decisions about what to eat, and this simple daily act can have profound outcomes. These classes will teach you which food choices can lead to optimal human health while having the least environmental impact. Learn how to evaluate water use, land requirements, energy use, and waste production, to assess the ecological footprint and sustainability of our daily food consumption decisions.

This class is free to anyone and everyone, but you must register in order to receive the Zoom class link.
