Menu for the Future Discussion Course & Film Series

2018 Menu for the Future CoverOver the last century, the way we grow, harvest, transport, and consume food has changed significantly. To explore the topic of food more fully, we are offering a study course developed by Northwest Earth Institute (NWEI) called Menu for the Future, a self-led discussion course designed to spark shared learning, shared stories, and shared action while exploring the connection between food and sustainability.

The six-week Menu for the Future weekly discussion groups will begin to meet the following week on January 29. The first group will meet weekly at 10:15 am, with a second group meeting weekly at 1:00 pm. Discussions will be held for both groups on Mondays, January 29, February 5, 12, 26, March 5 and 12. 

Menu for the Future participants learn more about the many cultural, social, and ecological implications of what we eat and discuss the importance of our eating habits. Together, groups can discover food choices that are healthy their bodies, the environment, and the local economy.

Program course books are available at the library, as an in house reference copy or books to purchase. 

Co-sponsored by Local 20/20, The Food Coop, Jefferson County Farmers Markets, and the Port Townsend Film Festival.
