The theme for National Nutrition Month® 2018 is “Go Further with Food.” Healthy Bytes is excited to help promote the Academy’s message of sustainability this year: “Preparing foods to go further at home and within the community can have a positive impact…As nutrition experts, Academy members can help people adopt healthier eating styles, while reducing food loss and waste.”
Join us on National RDN Day on Wednesday, March 14th, 2018 from 6pm – 8pm ET to mix and mingle with your fellow dietitians, and to learn more about how healthy eating and sustainability go hand in hand - from good soil management practices to meal prep that keeps waste reduction in mind. You'll hear from Meredith Danberg-Ficarello, Operations Director at NYC-based Common Ground Compost, who will share some brief info about the how and why of food scrap recycling as it relates to healthy eating, and an update on new NYC composting regulations and how Common Ground is helping to successfully implement them at restaurants and hotels across the city.
Whether you're new to composting or are a master composter, Meredith's tips and how-to's are sure to leave you feeling inspired to do more - not only in your own home, but in your clients' homes, too!
We'll have small "bytes" and beverages on site for you to enjoy, as well as the chance to win a copy of The Waste Free Kitchen Handbook, a guide to food storage, grocery shopping, and using up leftovers to maximize your food waste reduction potential.
