Explore Food Issues At Monthly Discussions

Grow It Green Morristown, in partnership with the Foodshed Alliance, is hosting a monthly series to inspire, connect and challenge some of the greatest food issues of today.

Join in on Thurs., Feb. 25, for “Osh Squash B’Gosh: A Childhood Nutrition Workshop,” a panel discussion featuring Janet Kopchinski, registered pediatric dietician at Be Well Morristown, and Shaun Ananko, director of Agriculture & Education at Grow It Green Morristown.

These days, parents must take nutrition into their own hands! However kids can be picky, organic food can be expensive, and the level of control is limited. Come learn the answers to questions such as: What foods should children eat? What is the proper portion size? How to get children to eat healthy, real food? Receive a sample meal plan for your child.

The last part of the series is set for Thurs., March 31, for “Building a Resilient Food System in the Garden State,” a discussion led by Kendrya Close, executive director of the Foodshed Alliance.
Could New Jersey farms supply enough food if something were to happen to disrupt outside supply chains? How can the number of NJ food-producing farms increase while strengthening the relationship between communities and farmers?

Both seminars are set to held at Hyatt Morristown, the venue sponsor, and snacks will be provided by Kings Food Markets, the food sponsor.

Tickets are $10 per person per session. For more information, visit: www.growitgreenmorristown.org/foodforthought.
