Food Week of Action & World Food Day October 15–22, 2017

We are called to work for a world where everyone has sufficient, healthy and culturally appropriate food! And where those who produce and prepare the food are fairly compensated, respected and celebrated!

The Global Food Week of Action includes World Food Day (Oct. 16), International Day for Rural Women (Oct. 15), and International Day for the Eradication of Poverty (Oct. 17).

                           Put your faith into action today!

  • Boycott Wendy’s, tweet, and deliver manager letters in solidarity with farmworkers.
  • Support family farmers by pushing for transparency around land investments by pension funds, starting with TIAA-CREF. ly/TIAAact
  • Raise your voice to push for justice and good stewardship in the next Farm Bill.  ly/17farmbill

Loving God, gather us together so that we may remind each other of your intent for this earth.

Gather us so that we may pour out our lives in Christ’s name, as Christ does on behalf of those who hunger.

For hope.  For justice.  For daily bread.

So that it will be on earth as it is in heaven.

For now and for always.
