Making Sustainable & Nutritional Grocery Choices: Presentation on May 16

Newton South’s senior sustainability class invites you to the Newton Community Farm at 7pm on Tuesday, May 16 to learn how you can make your grocery shopping eco-friendly!  This presentation will aim to educate consumers about the labels on their groceries and what those labels really mean when it comes to the product inside.

Students will speak about these labels in terms of the environment and answer which labels indicate sustainably produced food as well as the sustainable practices that local grocery stores have in place when it comes to acquiring their meat products. Students will also talk about nutrition and how to go about achieving proper nutrition in your daily life.  All of these questions will be answered in the context of Newton and how to go about making sustainable grocery and nutritional choices given the options available to the typical Newton resident.
