Southern Oregon Food Solutions (SOFS)
We, Southern Oregon Food Solutions (SOFS), started out as a group of people who had signed up to take a class presented by Southern Oregon Pachamama Alliance (SOPA) on the curriculum of Project Drawdown – a book that is a well researched compilation of the top ranked solutions that would help “drawdown” greenhouse gases (ghg’s) to reverse global warming, if adopted to scale. The book and the class were compelling, and the challenge given was to pick one of the solutions and make efforts to implement it in our local area. We decided to focus on reducing food waste which is ranked #3 as the most effective solution to fight climate change. Food waste accounts for 8% of the world’s green house gas emissions.
