Fallbrook Climate Action Team will present a talk about the Green Oceanside Kitchen, a state of the art food recovery and preservation facility which provides innovative solutions to food waste, hunger and culinary and environmental education. The talk will be held on Tuesday, October 29th at 6:30 pm in the Community Room at Fallbrook Library.
The Green Oceanside Kitchen is a Public-Private Partnership between the City of Oceanside and the O’side Kitchen Collaborative. They are using surplus agriculture from local growers and transforming it into delicious cuisine, preserved products and meals for the hungry.
One of the speakers, City of Oceanside’s Environmental Officer, Colleen Fowler, said the biggest gap to saving edible food is the space to process it. 40% of the food produced in the U.S. ends up in landfills. Part of the County’s Climate Action Plan is to get to zero waste. 1 in 7 adults and 1 in 5 children in San Diego County are food insecure. The Green Oceanside Kitchen is working to help close these gaps in North County.
The talk is presented by the Fallbrook Climate Action Team. The public is welcome. For more information, visit their web page at www.fallbrookclimateactionteam.org.
