You can often think of what you have for dinner, but have you ever stopped to think about how far the food has traveled to get there? Was it grown in the United States? Was it grown in another country? There are many reasons why people choose to buy and eat the food they make – taste, cost, availability, are the best. But taking care of where our food comes from – the Earth is getting bigger. What’s even better is that shifting our food purchases to protect the Earth can also lead to improved human health – it’s a win-win situation.
The Boyle County Extension Office will be hosting a workshop titled It’s a win-win for our health and our environment. Tuesday, July 12 at 6 p.m. Join us for this program where we will identify what sustainable food is and why it can benefit our local producers and farmers and the food they produce. We’ll also discuss what it means to eat local and how to rethink meal prep and grocery shopping. You won’t want to miss this fun and interactive lesson! During this program, there will be a cooking demonstration and recipe tasting of the Plate It Up KY Proud “Fresh Corn Salad” recipe. Call 236-4484 to register for the free program.
