When we gather in community, what we eat has the potential to promote animal welfare, slow down the negative effects of climate change and build healthier food systems. Over the last few years, more Jewish communities than ever have committed to improving their food sourcing and leveraging their buying power to promote more sustainable practices. These transitions come in parallel to larger institutional and corporate commitments.

Join us to hear from David Havelick, sustainability manager at Harvard University, who recently implemented Sustainable Healthful Food Standards and is part of a growing wave of schools and businesses aligning their values with their food practices. In this workshop, you’ll gain a better understanding of food-sourcing strategies and engage in discussion around how to develop an ethical food statement with your institution. We will share our experiences, ask questions and brainstorm with fellow participants around ways to bring these tools back to our respective communities.

Note: If two people from the same community register together, the third person is free!

Light kosher snacks will be served.
