"JUST EAT IT" CONTENT REVIEWER AND/OR RESEARCH FELLOW
Purpose: A key part of NEST’s mission is to promote generation of evidence and disseminate high quality education about social and environmental issues. Food waste is a significant contributor to increasing carbon in the atmosphere. "Just Eat It" is an online pilot project in collaboration with DrawDown Toronto and EcoCaledon designed to engage participants in weekly challenges to reduce their household food waste. Strategies to reduce food waste inherently play into increasing localization of the food supply chain and promoting food security and sovereignty. Please download a brief overview of the campaign here.
