We Can Change the World, One Bite at a Time
Presented by Loris Sofia Gregory, Healthy Kitchen & Home Coach


The simple joy of eating delicious, nutritious food is one great reason to eat fresh and local foods. Buying and eating fresh locally-grown, chemical-free food not only creates optimum health for ourselves and our families but is also the best proactive investment we can make in the economic, social and environmental health of our communities and our planet. We each have daily opportunities to impact our health, our earth and our world in how we eat and spend our food dollars. This interactive presentation will inspire you to easily lean into buying and enjoying fresh local food for less money and effort than you imagine. We truly can be the healthy changes that we want to see in the world.
