Sunday Spotlight: Food Waste Heroes
Join us one Sunday each month to hear from an inspiring, active speaker who will share information about an organization working to make our community and our world a better place. Topics run the gamut from basic needs to social justice to the environment. We welcome you to participate not only by listening and engaging in thoughtful dialogue, but also by reveling in uplifting music. We provide coffee, tea, and a welcoming space for inquiring minds and open hearts to learn from one another.
Our guest in May is John Loughrin, Community & Business Development Manager for OLIO, a free app that connects neighbors to reduce food waste. This could be food nearing its sell-by date in local stores, spare home-grown vegetables, bread from your baker, or the groceries in your fridge when you go away. John will be sharing ideas about how collectively – one rescued cupcake, carrot or bottle of lotion at a time – we can build a more sustainable future where our most precious resources are shared, not thrown away.
The program begins at 11 a.m. and ends at 12:30 p.m. We’d love it if you’d stay afterward for a beverage and light refreshments and to share your thoughts. It’s OK to just show up, but it always helps to know how many people to expect. You can use our Meetup page if you have a Meetup account, or you can contact us by email or this site’s contact form .
