November Sustainable Foods Tips:

  • Buy local foods as much as possible. This reduces the amount of fossil fuels burned to transport foods and supports the local economy.
  • Compost at Fountain Market & Octagon
  • Make an effort to eat less meat. Meat production greatly increases greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Buy organic foods when available. Organic foods are produced without harmful pesticides and artificial fertilizers.

November Events:

  • November Baking Contest: All November
  • College Coffee: November 8
  • Lights Out Bingo: November 10
