ABOUT STORIES OF FOOD AND FAITH
Across the country, whether in rural countryside or in busy urban centers, people are connecting their understanding of the Divine to the need for food. We see it in farm churches, communal kitchens, urban farms, and dinner gatherings. The deep hunger for meaning echoes the deep hunger for sustenance. This work crosses divisions of race, class, economics, and religion. More often than not, this work is being done away from bright lights and out of sight of most faith communities. We believe that these stories desperately need to be heard! The Food and Faith Storytelling Collective is a group of practitioners, writers, clergy, and artists who believe that the Stories of Food and Faith that live in community gardens, church basements, and farms in out of the way places can be the catalysts for healing in a broken world. We’re committed to using every medium at our disposal to share the tales of life, death, and renewal that are embedded in our faith traditions and present at our tables.
