St. Giles is working with the Interfaith Green Network, to study the problem of food waste in our community. We are leading off with educating people about the issue (like the video below), sharing articles, etc. Then programming, such as films and a panel discussion featuring experts from the Oak Park River Forest Food Pantry, will follow.

With a lot of feasting happening in the coming weeks, now is the time to plan ahead in an effort to reduce waste. Check out THESE QUICK AND EASY TIPS to reduce food waste at home from Stephanie Izard, Top Chef winner and owner of Chicago’s Girl & The Goat. Stay tuned for upcoming events sponsored by Interfaith Green Network to learn more about how to reduce waste.
