Sept 16th Restaurant Meeting

The next meeting of the Halton Peel Humanist Community will be held at Montfort Restaurant on Iroquois Road, just south of the Oakville Town Centre in Oakville on Tuesday, Sep. 16th at 7:00pm.

The topic of discussion at this meeting will centre on how our personal dietary choices affect others, whether those be humans or animals.

This topic is becoming more important for our emotional, physical and planetary well-being as we are currently much more removed from our food sources than we have ever been in the short history of humankind. With diverging issues of health ranging from cardiac to social and environment, it is important that we discuss the implication of our personal choices.

As with everything else, whatever we do... or eat, we need to do it conciously with the ultimate goal of reducing our 'foodprint'. That involves eating locally and, whenever possible, organically.

Besides improving the quality and taste of the food, it is more healthy for our bodies as well as our environment.

Looking forward to seeing some of you at the meeting.
