Get more plant-based food options at your school, workplace, or place of worship!
Are you interested in improving human health, protecting our environment, and creating change for animals? Wholesome Minnesota does all of this through getting cafeterias and food service providers to increase their plant-based options. Come learn how from those who have done it!
This event is one of a series of trainings by The Humane Society of the United States – Minnesota, Compassionate Action for Animals, and Forward Food. This training is intended for those new to Wholesome Minnesota and also for those who already have experience with the program.
This workshop will focus on how to make new contacts and talk about the program, and plant-based eating, to those who don’t know much about it.
At this training, you will also
- hear inspiring stories and learn practical tips for institutional outreach;
- get a variety of useful resources, including an advocate guide, fact sheets to share with administrators, and access to free training for food service providers, and
- connect with fellow advocates through breakout groups and role-playing activities.
Christine Coughlin will talk about the Forward Food program of the Humane Society of the United States. Julie Knopp, a kindergarten teacher and The Wholesome Minnesota project coordinator, will share tips for local advocates based on her experience working with the Richfield school district to adopt Meatless Mondays.
