Food & NourishmentWe help people to deepen, connect and engage by focusing on their relationship with food, nutrition, the environment, and sharing stories of personal health and wellness issues.
It’s about nourishment

Resources: Find local sustainable family farms and ranches, restaurants and markets, books, journals, and DVDs on food preparation, gardening, nutrition, agriculture, and ecology via our library, website, meetings, and buying club.

Education: Participate in programs including the Nourishing Connections Luncheon, cooking and baking events, a book group, food films, meetings with legislative updates, and action items.

Advocacy: Support access to clean water and foods. Buy local, fair trade, and garden. Support stewardship for the earth, farm and food workers’ rights, food sovereignty, food choice, food safety, and relevant legislation.

Food & Fellowship: Join in producing and reaping the bounty of harvest! Our events include sharing local sustainable foods, produce, and pasture-raised animal products.

Slow Soup Group: The Slow Soup Group meets the fourth Sunday of each month after the second service to prepare several soups in the church kitchen. You will get to take some home and leave some for Pastoral Care to use with folks in need of meals. This is a great way to learn more about making soups and also make some new friends.  For more information, contact Gilla Lachnitt.

JUC Foodies Book Group: The Foodies Book Group meets the second Tuesday of each month from 7 to 9 p.m. You don’t have to have read the book to attend the book discussions.  For more information, contact Carol Kolesnikoff.
