From staff reports

Green Cuisine, scheduled this year for Wednesday, July 13 from 5-8 p.m., is Michigan’s first zero waste event and an expression of Food for Thought’s mission to “raise awareness around just and sustainable food systems” and an effort to promote the best in local food and sustainable business practices. Visitors will be able to meet and sample the works of local food and beverage artisans, tour Food For Thought’s organic farm and green buildings as well as socialize, learn and have fun in a beautiful setting. A “green lifestyles” tent where you can learn about other green local products and services will also be available. And it’s all free!

In line with that philosophy, this is a “zero-waste” event. As in all things sustainable, “zero-waste” is a process, not a destination. The goal is for all the waste generated from the event to be either reusable, recyclable or compostable. In year’s pas, Food for Thought has had up to 1,000 visitors and generated less than 7 ounces of waste! This is accomplished, in part, by composting 100 percent of food and paper waste on the farm. By attending you can observe all other green tricks that have been perfected over the years.

Food for Thought is located at 10704 Oviatt Rd, just south of the Leelanau County line in Honor. For more information, please call (231) 326-5444 or email
