Climate Changes Everything: Food for Thought

The Parry Sound & Area Food Collaborative in partnership with the GBBR, Mary Street Centre and North Bay Parry Sound District Health Unit, presents Climate Changes Everything: Food For Thought, a FREE presentation with speaker Dianne Saxe, President of Saxe Facts and former Environmental Commissioner of Ontario.

Dr. Saxe will address the relationship between climate change and our food systems. The climate is changing, consumer food choices play a major role, and as individuals, we can make meaningful changes. The breadth and embedded nature of the 21st century global food system requires collective action at all levels to shift toward sustainable behaviour.
