About Judy Wicks

Judy Wicks is the world class business owner of the White Dog Cafe, a visionary social entrepreneur and co-founder of the Business Alliance for Local Living  Economies and the Philadelphia Sustainable Business Network, a board member of the American Independent Business Alliance, and one of the great champions of Green and Local business!

Judy is an internationally known and inspiring speaker, networker and vision-keeper for a positive, sustainable future. We are honored to have her with us for this year's Earth Day!

Sustainable neighborhoods and businesses learning to "Go Green and Local" offer hope in these times of economic turbulence, global climate change, threats of oil shortages and confrontation. Citizens and consumers build community and relationships by patronizing local businesses. 

Judy's message is Hopeful, Timely, Important...Everyone Come !

Low Carbon Diet:
A 30-Day Program to Lose 5000 Pounds

Based on David Gershon's book of the same name, this 5 week course offers help that is action-oriented in helping individuals and families find the appropriate changes that result in a reduction of greenhouse gases, and quantify them so you can actually progress in the most meaningful actions for your family or yourself.  

Did we mention that the actions-many of which don't even cause inconvenience-will also save you $$! 

Phyllis Fitzgerald will help guide participants in their decision-making.

The class takes place from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. on 5 Mondays, beginning April 14 at the Passionist Earth and Spirit Center, 1924 Newburg Road.

(Park in the St. Agnes parking lot and walk around back to the Barn.) 

The $30 donation includes a copy of the book. 

To register, call Terry Schuhman at 451-2330 between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. weekdays.

Help Feed the Children!

Metro Community Leaders,

Louisville Metro Community Action Partnership (CAP) is now in the season to recruit new sites for the Summer Food Service Program (AKA Summer Lunch). You are all welcome to apply if you, or an organization you are affiliated with, would like to help feed children well-balanced meals when school's out.

The Summer Food Service Program delivers the meals to the sites. The meals are free (for the children and for the site).

Please forward this information to any contacts in your community that you feel would be interested in the opportunity to partner in this program.

Last year we had 195 Summer Food sites in Louisville and we hope to surpass that this year. Any location is welcome to apply that will be providing childcare or summer activities for children (including teenagers), or that is interested in serving meals to the children in their neighborhood.

Attached you will find an application for 2008 sites as well as a letter to potential sites and a brochure that discusses the program in more detail.

If interested, we need applications to be returned to our office by May 2nd, 2008.
