Purpose and Pepper Quote
Bites With A Purpose, Spring
Last Monday I held the second  “Bites With a Purpose” event after launching this event series back in November 2016. I am happy to say it was a success and so grateful for all the people that helped and performed their magic at the event night, so that all 80 guests got what they came for.
Great people, delicious food and an important message was part of this event, where we continued to raise awareness around how we all, through CONSCIOUS FOOD CHOICES, can fairly easily and in the most effective way, take part in improving the state of our planet and everyone living on it.
Bites With a Purpose is an event series that focuses on real food, and the importance of making conscious food choices. We work to raise awareness around how this is important for absolutely everyone, no matter what you care about. Because, food and food production is the heart of our health crisis and a large part of the reason for our environmental challenges, and that effects everyone living on this planet in some sort of way. In other words: Food CAN fix it!
Whether it is for the sake of climate change, public health, animal welfare, hunger, children or something else, food is an area where we all can make a difference for what we care about. And the good news is, it doesn´t require a total makeover or some kind of radical change. It just requires us all to care and make small sustainable changes, step by step. By doing so, we invest in our own health and the planets and we also make real food more accessible for everyone, everywhere.
Trough Bites With A Purpose we aim to increase the popularity around making healthy, mindful and sustainable choices, and to educate people on these subjects. Steps among many, not just leaps among a few, will take us far.
So many inspiring and engaged people gathered for this evening,
