The Global Plate: An Exploration
Ever wondered what is the impact of our food consumption choices? From production to transportation and disposal, our choices have an impact. Knowing how and where your food is produced can reduce environmental issues like resource depletion, air quality degradation and wildlife loss all around the globe.
EARTH WEEK AT COMMERCE COURT
From April 22 to 26, visitors to our Compass learned about the environmental issues related to our daily food choices and how to reduce our footprint through simply actions. Participants had an opportunity to test their knowledge with a short online quiz for a chance to win prizes such as a cooking class for two at Dish Cooking Studio, a $100 gift certificate to Planta and a $50 gift card to Cafe Belong.
Winners will be contacted individually and posted on this page by May 3, 2019.
