Living Green in Needham

Food/Diet

Learn how you can fight climate  change by changing your diet – eating more plant-based foods and limiting your intake of meat, especially red meat. It’s a triple win — good for you, good for the environment, and an inspiration to expand your cooking repertoire! We hope you will join with Meatless Monday Needham and  take the pledge.

Also, where can I buy local food? What are some ways to reduce food waste at home? What local organizations are working to get food to those in need?

Explore Living Green in Needham for answers to these questions and more!
