This free, online workshop will be hosted by Health and Wellness Ministry and the Environmental Ministries Team to help congregations participate in National Nutrition Month during March. The workshop will explore how faith informs our relationship with food as well as our relationship to others and to Creation,and is offered as part of the SNEUCC Health and Wellness Quarterly Webinar series.

Eating is a regular activity that connects us with Creation and others around the world and challenges us to consider how we care for the earth to ensure health for all. Recognizing our responsibility as stewards of creation, we will consider how faith and food relate to matters of justice and health for individuals and communities.
