"Healing the Earth, Healing our Bodies," the second in a five-part virtual dialogue series on food and faith, will be held May 13 from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Eastern Time.
The globe is facing a dual health crisis: hunger and poor diet. Both are functions of an imbalanced system that creates scarcity to foster excess. The global adoption of a heavy diet of salt, sugar, and red meat creating with it mass ecosystem destruction and global health issues. Healing will only come from balance and by moving away from global extraction that poisons the water and land we depend upon. Due to the ubiquitous influence of the industrialized food system, there is also more need for education and awareness about ways to prepare healthy foods.
