The Mindful Eating Coalition came together in the summer of 2011 after 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. We explored the idea of gathering the food-related groups in the church under one umbrella. Then we met with Keeley Kelaski of CROP Walk, Delphine DeCaen of the Good Food Garden, and Jenny Kropf and Cathy Whitaker of the Fair Trade Coffee Project, who agreed to the concept of a coalition.
