Faith Communities: Food Waste Weekend 2017
September 8, 2017 - September 10, 2017
Each year in the United States we waste 133 Billion pounds of food. That equals 40% of food produced. At the same time, 1 in 6 Americans doesn’t know where their next meal will come from.
In order to solve our food waste problem we need everyone to take action.
Calling All Faith Communities
Food Waste Weekend was created to involve faith communities as an integral part of the solution to reducing food waste. AmpleHarvest.org and Greenfaith have put together resources for clergy of all faith backgrounds to integrate a message on food waste reduction into their sermons over this weekend.
All faiths teach about feeding the hungry. Food Waste Weekend refocuses the discussion to ending hunger by reducing food waste. Encourage your clergy to join the fight and give a sermon about food waste so your congregation can make a difference.
