SCPA Our Diet And Our Planet February 7th, 2019


Please join us for a thoughtful exploration of the impact that food has on our economy, our climate, the environment, our health and life, and finally -- the animals. Perhaps you'll see things from a perspective that you have not yet considered.

Most of us don't give a second thought to the impact of the foods that we eat, beyond taste or simple nutrition. The consequences are many and very powerful, indeed! It's not a topic that most of us like to face, but we will examine this with a fresh, non-judgmental attitude. It's time for a liberal helping of "foodie" facts!

Thursday, Feb. 7th at 6:30 p.m. at the Front Street Civic Center, 2205 Front Street, Melbourne, FL.


  • Keenun Barley on the plant-based journey she embarked on at the request of her 12-year-old daughter.
  • Jarod Jacobs on overcoming MS symptoms through a vegetarian diet.
  • Kayla Leaming on the animals we consume.
  • Mike Leaming on the effect animal consumption has on the planet. 

The Leamings organize for Okeechobee Animal Save, Orlando Animal Save, Anonymous for the Voiceless Orlando, Florida Climate Save and Orlando Health Save. Together they host Vegan Campout USA.

Come at 6 PM to watch Keenun present plant-based food preparation. FREE food samples from Paisley Vegan Kitchen and The Nomad Cafe https://thenomadcafe.com
