Ends & Stems: Meal Planning to Reduce Plastic & Food Waste

Saturday | July 24, 2021 | 11:00 am — 12:30 pm

Online Event


Celebrate Plastic Free July with personal action!  Most Americans waste an average of 25% of their kitchen food, at the cost of over $2,000 annually. Fresh produce tops the list of food waste items


Chef Alison Mountford invites you into her kitchen as she shares how you can create a plastic free and zero waste kitchen in your own home. In this class you will be guided in creating your own meal plan, how to shop and what to do once you get the groceries back into your kitchen. Learn the best way to store food, create menus, prepare meals and use leftovers. This is an interactive class and you are encouraged to be in their kitchen so you can look through your hands-on groceries with other attendees.  

You will leave with recipe cards and a 7-day plan that outlines the best way you can reduce food waste, and reduce stress at mealtime and a better understanding of the impact of food waste on our environment.

Chef Alison Mountford is the founder of Ends + Stems, a meal planning service with the goal of creating meals that have a meaningful impact on your life and your planet. A graduate of the San Francisco Culinary Institute, Chef Alison is passionate about helping others reduce their food waste by sharing meal planning, shopping, cooking and storing techniques.
