Sourcing Higher Welfare: Navigating food claims and choosing best options (Part 1)
February 28, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
We kick off with a two-part, in-depth webinar conversation about Jewish tradition and crucial tools for making conscious purchasing choices today:
Sourcing Higher Welfare: Navigating food claims and choosing best options
Ever wonder what all those claims and labels on food containers mean? Which indicate good practices, and which are in line with your values? For example, some of the most confusing claims appear on animal products, most of which (including kosher) come from factory farms. How can understanding Jewish concepts inform our work in making ethical and responsible food choices, for ourselves and for our Jewish institutions? How can we source the most humane, sustainable food products for our communities, and develop long-term goals for building healthier food systems? How can we best leverage our buying power?
Join our two-part webinar (February 28 & March 7) to learn about some of the truths about our current food system, and gain the tools to navigate it.
