Residents interested in learning how their food choices affect the local environment can join the discussion during a Thursday potluck hosted by Cook InletKeeper.
The event will feature local foods, and attendees are invited to bring a dish featuring local ingredients to share.
A panel of local food experts, moderated by Heidi Chay of Kenai Soil and Water Conservation District, will explore how food choices impact the local environment, according to a press release.
The panel will feature Kenai Peninsula Food Bank Executive Director Greg Meyer and Eliza Eller, a co-founding member of the food-and-ecology-focused community of Ionia in Kasilof.
The event is the fourth event in the Book to Action Climate Series organized by Cook Inletkeeper and Kenai Change.
Since April, the series has hosted monthly discussions focused on aspects of climate change. The series will continue with an Aug. 22 meeting considering the built environment and a Sept. 26 discussion on land use.
The event will take place Thursday at 5:30 p.m at the Cook Inletkeeper community studio, 35911 Kenai Spur Hwy, Suite 13.
