There’s a conference this weekend in California on the Spirituality of Food. Here’s the details (HT: Allyson):
We’re learning more and more about the ways in which our eating habits impact the natural world and contribute to global warming — check out the LA Times this morning! — but the connections between food, spirituality, planet care, and economic justice go even farther. Join PCU and our partner organizations for a unique afternoon of interactive learning and action when we tie it all together.
