October 14, 2018

BOSTON (AP) — Oxfam America is teaming up with a popular chef to teach consumers how to fight hunger starting right at their kitchen tables.

Chef Jennifer Heilig of the restaurant For the Table will be on hand starting at noon Tuesday at The Kitchen in the Boston Public Market. She’ll demonstrate how to buy and cook local food that’s in season, and how that can make a global impact.

Oxfam America says the event is being held to mark World Food Day.

The Boston-based organization says consumer decisions can make a difference and help ease the environmental impact of growing food around the planet.

The United Nations uses World Food Day to highlight efforts to tackle global hunger.
