Description

Earth Equity Advisors' Annual Speaker Series returns for its sixth year on November 5th at 6 pm (doors open at 5:30 pm). Reducing food waste is one of the top three ways we can reverse climate change, according to the world's leading resource for climate solutions (Project Drawdown). So often climate change feels too big to resolve, so we have decided to focus our speaker series on ways we can each make a difference. Join us as Earth Equity CEO, Peter Krull leads a conversation with two leading experts on food waste - author Jonathan Bloom and the James Beard Foundation's Katherine Miller.

Some of the topics we'll touch on are:

  • Growing a sustainable food system for all
  • The art of kitchen efficiency
  • Benefits of food waste reduction
  • What we can each do to reverse climate change

THIS IS A FREE EVENT AND A TICKETED EVENT. YOU MUST RESERVE A TICKET HERE FOR ENTRANCE TO THE EVENT.

DOORS OPEN: 5:30pm

EVENT BEGINS: 6:00pm
