venue: Larkspur Community Center 1600 SE Reed Market Road Bend Oregon 97701
Join us as we celebrate Earth Month 2023 with a film festival and Lunch & Learn series. Featuring four powerful and informative films that make the connection between what is on our plate and human health, human performance, the climate and the health of all life on Earth.
The program will take place on four successive Tuesdays: April 4th, 11th, 18th and 25th from 12:00-2:30 pm at Larkspur Community Center.
These free events will include a film, a discussion, food samples, and cooking demonstrations. Those who attend will gain an awareness of the power of their food choices, learn practical ways to shift toward a plant strong diet, find out where to find resources, and understand that each of us can have an effect on our collective future by the simple choices we make each day. Brought to you in cooperation with Vegnet Bend and Bend Park & Recreation District.
