F.I.S.H. of Sanibel-Captiva, the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation and Robert Rauschenberg Foundation will host “Cooking for the Planet: Healthy, Cooking for Climate Change” on March 4 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the pavilion at the Bailey Homestead Preserve, at 1300 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel. Led by Robert Rauschenberg Foundation Chef-in-Residence Jackie Vitale and SCCF Chief Executive Officer Ryan Orgera, it will be an informative lecture about climate change from the perspective of food. Something as simple as what foods we buy and how we prepare them can have an impact on the environment, and participants will discover how small steps can make a significant change. Vitale will discuss how the food system impacts the changing climate, from seed to supermarket, fridge to landfill. The lecture is the third in a series titled “Cooking for the Planet: Healthy, Affordable and Climate-Friendly Kitchen Techniques.” Light bites and refreshments will be available at 6 p.m. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased through Eventbrite at www.eventbrite.com. For more information, contact Kathy Y. Monroe or Anthony Morales at the F.I.S.H. at 239-472-4775.
