About the Event
It may seem obvious that food is essential to our lives and communities. But what we see on our plates is part of a complex process that involves a confluence of lives, communities and systems. The Ethics of Eating event will explore U.S. food production and the global food distribution system as it relates to hunger, worker rights, and the environment. As people of faith, we approach the topic through a theological lens, while listening to those who are involved in this system for their livelihood. Join us as we consider this topic through some hands-on experience at a farm, a variety of speakers, and engaging discussion.
After this event, each participant will:
Enrich their understanding of a just and sustainable food system, and gain perspective on a theological response to hunger.
Implement a follow-up project, action or activity.
Participate in the ELCA World Hunger Leader Network and online community.
If you have any questions, please contact Henry Martinez (Henry.Martinez@elca.org) or 773-380-2792.
We look forward to receiving your 2013 Ethics of Eating application.
