Supporting the Environment through Club Meals
Want to be healthier and have a healthier planet? Eat a plant rich diet.
Location/Club: Rotary Club of Boise Metro, District 5400, Idaho, USA
Now Boise Metro Rotary’s meals and meetings align with the 4-Way Test. Best of all, they are promoting personal and planetary health.
Want to be healthier and have a healthier planet? Eat a plant rich diet. Want to slow climate change? Reduce food waste. For these reasons and others, Boise Metro Rotary changed meeting venues, switching from a hotel with off-site caterer and disposable dinnerware, to a restaurant with reusable plates, glasses, and flatware. The restaurant makes grains, legumes, fruit or vegetables the main course with meat as a side or optional serving. After each meeting, leftover food is delivered to a local women’s shelter, and any paper or plastics are recycled.
