This event aims to create awareness of food going to stomachs and not to landfills. There is a demand for more organic produce and we can help to make sure no food is wasted and everyone eats.
The event includes local healthy meals and free starbucks coffee. We hope this community service will result in bringing awareness and participation from local businesses and the community itself to stop food waste. We are taking action to help make a difference. Our engagement and activities will increase public awareness of our society’s challenges and how we can leverage resources and partners to provide solutions. The goal of this event is to show solidarity as ONE community to help and serve others in need and their causes. Our vision is to “GIVe Local, Inspire Global.”
