At God's table: Food justice for a healthy world

Date: 
Friday, April 5, 2013 - 12:45 to Monday, April 8, 2013 - 12:45

 

Join thousands of Christian advocates at the 11th annual Ecumenical Advocacy Days (EAD) to seek "Food justice for a healthy world" ... In a world that produces enough food for everyone, EAD will explore the injustices in global food systems that leave one billion people hungry, create food price shocks that destabilize communities everywhere, and undermine God's creation.

At God's table, all are invited and fed, and the poorest in our midst are given a special place. Together we will seek the abundance and equality that we find reflected in the biblical image of God's great banquet table (Exodus 16:16-18 and Luke 14:12-24). Inspiring speakers will offer a faith-based vision for fair and humane food policies and practices, along with grassroots advocacy training, all culminating with Monday's Lobby Day on Capitol Hill.
