Sustainable cooking, sustainable eating

Since HSC is getting more involved with sustainability/food justice issues right now, I thought I'd share a couple upcoming events related to these efforts:

1) Next Thursday, January 28 at 7 p.m. there will be a screening of Food, Inc. and short films by teens about food justice at Vegetarian Restaurant by Hakin ( 73 NE 167 St., North Miami, Fl, 33162). Informative vids and free popcorn? Yes, please!

2) Fairchild’s Erin Healy will be teaching a class on creating healthy meals and reducing your carbon footprint by choosing local, seasonal ingredients. The course will include a brief “kitchen botany” classification activity, followed by a carbon footprint calculation and practical information on local South Florida farms, seasonal crops and community-supported agriculture (CSAs). Be prepared to cook and ask questions about how your food choices affect the environment. If time allows she will also prepare a raw, or “live food,” side dish.

6 to 9 p.m.
Wednesday, February 3 (one session)
Registration deadline: Friday, January 29
Fee: Members, $45; Non-members, $65

Call Marilyn Caputo at 305-667-1651 xt. 3322 to register by Friday, 1/29
