Green Oceanside and San Diego Food System Alliance Help
Maximize Weekly Groceries While Minimizing Food Waste
Within San Diego County, 500,000 tons of food end up in the landfill every year, while one pound of food creates the same emissions as 20% of the energy used daily in an average household. This waste of edible food represents loss of water, energy, and labor resources used to grow and transport this needed food. Many families are facing hunger for the first time as they navigate a global pandemic. With many families already facing food insecurity, the Green Oceanside team is providing tools and resources on maximizing food to last for the overall health and sustainability of the community
The City of Oceanside Public Works Department has initiated a feasibility study that seeks to develop a strategy to protect City beaches from the impacts of long-term shoreline erosion. Our consultant (GHD) was hired to perform a preliminary engineering evaluation and feasibility study to consider options for beach sand replenishment and/or retention devices to stabilize and enhance the beach widths in the City. GHD has begun the review and analysis of data and relevant global project examples and has developed six preliminary concepts to carry forward in the feasibility study. The goal of the study is to identify a beach replenishment/retention strategy that is environmentally sensitive, financially feasible and has a reasonable chance of being approved through the regulatory permitting process.

Oceanside Public Library, in partnership with the League of Women Voters of North County San Diego, invites you to participate in this year’s National Voter Registration Day activities. When George Washington was elected president in 1789, only 6% of the U.S. population was eligible to vote. Since then, Americans have marched, gone on hunger strikes, been beaten, and even died to win the right to vote. Sadly, today, many Americans take for granted the right to vote. In an online workshop on Tuesday, September 22 at 11 a.m., presenter Blaze Newman will tell the inspiring story of the Americans who fought for the past 172 years for the right to vote and the voting challenges present today. We’ll also discuss why so many Americans don’t vote and how to get registered.
