Cafeteria, Culinary, Community: How to Lower Your Campus Food Footprint!
Join ImpAct-Climate project participants Conestoga College and Durham College and the Forward Food* team to learn how campus food choices and agricultural curriculum impacts Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions and how different choices make a significant impact on lowering your carbon footprint while lowering costs and contributing to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
*Forward Food has partnered with many CICan member institutions over the past 5 years to offer culinary training to chef instructors.
In this interactive workshop, you will learn about the Scope 3 GHG emissions generated by campus food sources and agricultural programs. You’ll hear about alternative practices that reduce your campus GHGs and educate students, staff, and faculty about how they can reduce their own carbon footprint even when they’re not on campus.
PLUS! Conestoga and Durham College will share the best practices they’ve used, so far, to bring campus food closer to net-zero.
