Just Eat It: A food waste story
Sunday, March 19, 1-3 pm, UUAA Fahs Chapel, UUAA*
North American households waste 15-20% of all the food they buy. This movie follows a couple from Vancouver who take a six-month challenge to survive only on discarded food.
After the movie, we'll discuss strategies to waste less.
A light lunch will be provided using foods at risk of being discarded.
Co-sponsored by: Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism (RAC), Temple Beth Emeth (TBE), Interfaith Council for Peac and Justice (ICPJ), 1st Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Ann Arbor - Mindful Eating Team.
Exciting things we've recently done:
Meet Your Farmer: Dyer Family Organic Farm
On Sunday, January 15, Dick Dyer talked to a nice crowd about how the Dyer Family Organic Farm (aka Dick's 'Pretty Good!' Garlic) was started by Dick and Diana Dyer in 2009. He discussed the different varieties of garlic they grow, how being organic is so important, and about their bee hives and the honey they sell.

The Ethical Eating Statement of Conscience (SOC) was adopted by our congregation and the national UUA at the spring General Assembly. The UUAA's Ethical Eating Team (EET) had served its original purpose of learning and exploring with the congregation what ethical ways of eating were in order to help write the SOC (click here to see what we did).
The EET's coordinators, Colleen Crawley and Cathy Muha, met with representatives of the well-established Locavore group: Guala Lauzzanna, Connie McGuire , Eileen Wright, Merrill Crockett and decided to join together.
