Food Week of Action
Creation Justice Ministries is a co-sponsor of the Food Week of Action. It begins this Sunday, October 9 and includes International Day for Rural Women (October 15), World Food Day on October 16, and International Day for the Eradication of Poverty (October 17). As you may recall, in 2015, Creation Justice Ministries released the Christian Education resource "Sustainable Food in a Changing Climate." We encourage you to re-visit it this week!
The priority actions for this year’s Food Week advocate for fair wages and trade and land justice. Our faith calls us 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 (October 9-17) is an opportunity for Christians around the world to act together for food justice and food sovereignty. It is a special time to raise awareness about approaches that help individuals and communities develop resiliency and combat poverty. Beyond examining our food choices, we must also recognize the lingering roots of racism embedded in our food system, which was founded on slavery and plantation agriculture, and still exploits the environment and workers in the food chain. We call for societal and policy changes that bring us closer to realizing the right to food for everyone and positive transformation of the dominant system.
