This week, our program manager Bridget Stuchly was honored at Slow Food Utah’s Feast of the Five Senses with the “Community Leader – Snail Award.” We’re grateful (and not at all surprised) that she received this recognition! (Though she was surprised, because we all kept it a secret!)
The Slow Food Utah Snail Awards were launched in 2012 as a way of recognizing those people who are ardent supporters and believers in the Slow Food mission. That mission is to “inspire individuals and communities to change the world through food that is good, clean and fair for all.”
Carson Chambers of Slow Food Utah and the Downtown Farmers Market presenting the “Community Leader Snail Award” to SLCgreen Program Manager Bridget Stuchly on October 21, 2018.
On Sunday, October 18th at 8:00 a.m. SLCgreen’s Bridget Stuchly and Tyler Poulson will present at the World Parliament of Religions. Their presentation, Dining with Discretion: Food Choices Matter, outlines how personal choices about what and how we eat impact our environment and can either contribute to, or help alleviate, climate change.
Long story short, there are some very real steps you can take in your everyday eating habits that will have a positive impact on the environment:
- Eat less meat & dairy
- Eat more plants
- Cook smart
- Waste less
- Speak out
