Fixing Food – Screening & Hybrid Panel Discussion

PRESENTED BY: Temple B’nai Torah
9:30 AM, Saturday, February 4, 2023 PST
Location: Temple B’nai Torah (click for map)

To many of us, climate change is remote, abstract, too grim to consider, too far removed from our daily lives. But we now know that one of the biggest triggers for global warming is something all of us do every day: eating.

Growing and processing food, and packaging and bringing it to us—all use enormous amounts of energy, water, and chemicals, creating an overwhelming burden on our planet’s resources.Fortunately, across the country, intrepid innovators are recognizing and exploring solutions to the problems of growing our nation’s food while responding to climate change.

FIXING FOOD, written, produced and directed by by Sue Williams, tells stories of people who are working to lower our carbon footprint with impactful new ways to gather and prepare the food we need, looking at five important areas where we can make changes—farming in the ocean and the air, finding new food sources, learning from Indigenous agriculture, and rescuing the food we already have.

Please join Temple B’nai Torah & Kirkland Meaningful Movies for this film screening and hybrid panel discussion featuring:

Author Julia L.F. Goldstein  who will speak about ways to reduce food waste at home
Em Buktenica, resident at Carnation Farms, who will speak about how to support local farms and agriculture
A representative from Northwest Harvest, who will speak about advocacy opportunities for their Hunger Action Day on February 7

Join us Saturday, February 4 from 9:30am – 12:00pm either in-person or via Zoom to learn more about food waste and what we can do about it.
