Food, Faith, & Organizing

What Does Your Faith Say about Food Justice?

 

Many families in Louisville—especially those facing limited resources—have a difficult time accessing the farm fresh food we all need to be happy and healthy. This situation is becoming increasingly dire as Krogers Corporation abandons our urban core neighborhoods. What does the Prophet Nehemiah (5) have to say about the responsibility we Louisvillians have to ensure that everyone has access to farm-fresh, nutritious food, regardless of zip code? What does 2 Kings 4 and the miracle of the oil have to do with the collective economics of New Roots Fresh Stop Markets? What does the Torah say about the difference between charity and justice (tzedakah)? Come down to the historic Russell Neighborhood in West Louisville to hear speakers Pastor David Snardon and New Roots Director Karyn Moskowitz and join in on a group conversation aimed at finding sustainable, community-driven solutions.

 

Joshua Tabernacle Missionary Baptist Church is located at 426 S 15th St, Louisville, KY 40203
