PSNA November 2019 meeting


We have a varied program this time!


We welcome representatives of the DPW for both Somerville and Cambridge next Thursday, the 21st, to discuss the issues that come up on the edges where the two city’s meet.

Some PSNA members live just feet or a block or so from that divide (including a few whose houses are actually partly in each!).

Issues like who is supposed to remove the snow piled up at the end of the sidewalk/road, shoved by one city but perhaps resting in the other city. 

PSNA meeting--Waste Not!


We will be talking about food waste, at many levels.

We all shop, eat; most of us cook; and we know how hard it is to see that all of those groceries are used up.

Imagine that you are an institution, or a restaurant; what do you do to make sure nothing goes to waste?


We will have guests:


Sasha Purpura, Executive Director of Food For Free 

Todd Kaplan, representing Boston Area Gleaners
