Digital E-Learning Opportunities in March 2021

by | Mar 5, 2021 | Food Waste

This month Second Harvest continues our e-learning offerings with two new topics: eating well on a budget, and how to eat sustainably for the good of your health and our planet’s.

Eating Well on a Budget

Eating well doesn’t have to break the bank! Join us for an informative hour of wallet-wise healthy eating info developed by registered dieticians exclusively for Second Harvest. We’ll explore six powerful strategies to help you reduce your food costs without compromising nutrition, like seasonal shopping, how to find delicious canned and frozen options, using plant-based proteins and even how to reignite your interest in cooking at home! 

Pro tip: All participants will also receive plant-based recipes and a food budget tip sheet. 

Wednesday, March 17 from 2pm to 3pm EST. Register on Eventbrite

Eating Sustainably for the Planet

Did you know you can help the environment right from your plate? In this webinar, we will learn simple changes we can make to our diets that will not only be good for the planet but also our well-being. Among the tools we’ll be using are the Planetary Health Plate created by the Harvard School of Public Health as well as the new Canada’s Food Guide. You’ll learn how to assess your own diet from both a nutrition and sustainability perspective – and find out what questions you can ask yourself to make improvements. 

Pro tip: Surprise! Processed foods can be part of healthy eating – sign up for the webinar to learn how.

Wednesday, March 23 from 2pm to 3pm EST. Register on Eventbrite

Tickets are free – and you are welcome to make a donation to Second Harvest once you register. Thank you!
