“Love Your Food, Hate The Waste; Tasting a Greener Future”

Saturday, October 2, 2021: 1PM – 3PM


To ring in the school year and kick off our new theme of “All Things Food”, Green Urban Revitalization is hosting an online workshop for High Shcool Volunteers in the Peel Region and Greater Toronto Area.

Come prepared with a “typical grocery list” from your household, as well as some of your favourite recipes and we will help to teach you to practically reduce your own food waste in your day-to-day lives.

Look forward to topics such as:

– Scrappy Recipes!

– Urban Composting!

– Introduction to Food Injustice and Food Insecurity!

– Sustainable Food Shopping!

At the end of the event, all attendees will earn 2 volunteer hours!

We look forward to seeing you there!
