Mercy Earth Challenge - Just Food

Tuesday, September 1, 2020 to Sunday, October 4, 2020

Over the five weeks of the Season of Creation, we will reflect on a topic that binds us tightly to creation – food, a gift from Earth that not only sustains us, but links us with unknown sisters and brothers around the world. 

This season we will explore: 

  • Industrial food production: turning food into a commodity
  • Processed foods: their impact on the health and livelihoods of people around the world
  • Palm oil: a substance we encounter daily but maybe never heard of, but one that has serious negative impacts on many poor countries in the global south
  • Food waste I: shopping to avoid waste, reducing food waste at home
  • Food waste II: food dating, composting
