Food for Thought: Lenten Reflections on Food Justice


Who has food, and who doesn't?  What's wrong with our food system and what alternatives exist?  How do our food choices affect the most vulnerable members of the human family?  How does the act of feeding ourselves sustain - rather than degrade - ecosystems?  What response is God calling us to as co-creators of this marvelous community of life?

Based on the Common Lectionary readings (Cycle C), this resource includes a weekly reflection, suggested actions and prayers to guide the reader through the Lenten Season in prayerful consideration of food justice.  Suitable for individuals or communities.
