Earth Week 2019 Celebration

The Global Plate: An Exploration

This Earth Week Take an Environmental Food Journey

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.

Did you know?

The average Canadian meal travels almost 1,200 kilometers from farm to plate, with many items being grown or harvested in an unsustainable manner. Canadians also waste an average of one out of every four grocery bags they buy, causing an even greater strain on our local environment.

What can we do?

Learn how to make better food purchasing choices! This Earth Week join us from April 22 to 26 on a food journey across the globe through a large engaging installation in the PATH across from the Eatery.

Complete an online quiz for your Chance to Win Prizes!

Visit the installation on Thursday, April 25 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. to hear from ourĀ Eco Ambassadors about the global food plate project and take our quiz for a chance to win prizes including cooking classes that celebrate local ingredients.
