Plan Now for the Week of Action on Food

Seattle Presbytery


With almost one billion people facing chronic hunger and food price shocks causing further crisis in vulnerable communities, churches and individuals around the world are asked to set aside one week in October for specific reflection and action on food.

Dedicate October 10-17 2011 to worship, study, and practical action that promotes change in the way food is grown, sold, distributed and consumed. This year’s resource guide addresses the structural issues and institutions that are at the root of the current food crisis and emphasizes changes we can make individually and collectively.

This year, World Food Day, October 16, falls on a Sunday, which gives Christians an added opportunity to connect food justice with our faith. Also note that October15 is International Day for Rural Women and October 17 is International Day for the Eradication of Poverty.

A resource guide in English, French and Spanish will be available at the end of August. The guide provides background to key issues in the food crisis and suggests what needs to change. The guide offers action ideas, as well as worship resources.
