If you haven’t had a chance to take a look at the Council’s curriculum, “Eating Well: For Ourselves, For Our Neighbors, For Our Planet,” I urge you to do so. You will find food justice interwoven with all of the Council’s areas of work. You will see how eating well affects your body, environment, farmworkers, and even peaceful relations. And you will join the many folks across our nation who are on this journey.
If you have participated in “Eating Well” and are looking for other such resources, the organizers of National Food Day have put together an updated guide for faith-based groups. You can check out their collection of Food and Faith resources. And, you will see your very own Council’s curriculum represented.
Lilia Smelkova, from National Food Day, says that, “Communities of faith play a special role in influencing behavior change and policy around food, agriculture, and nutrition, and providing food-related services to communities across America. We encourage you to get involved in Food Day in a variety of ways, and we hope that this Guide will provide some useful advice and tools for creating great Food Day events, whether you’re organizing in your state, region, neighborhood, at home, or in your place of worship.”
We thank Lilia and the staff at Food Day — which is on October 24 — for putting this resource together. Let us know what you favorite resources are.
