Presbyterian Hunger Program calling for Food Justice Fellows

Applications for class of 2012 now being accepted


We know that economic, ecological, and social justice are intersecting concerns. We are called by God– who creates, redeems and sustains us all– to work for the well-being of all people on a thriving earth, the good creation God loves.

One place where the intersecting justice issues are very clear is in food justice work: good, sustainable food systems which use clean water and healthy soil build solid, stable communities.

The Presbyterian Hunger Program is hosting a program for Food Justice Fellows. Consider becoming a Food Justice Fellow or passing along this invitation to someone else.

What it is: Food Justice Fellows are a cohort of faith-based organizers connected to the Presbyterian Hunger Program (PHP). PHP will arrange for at least one training/networking opportunity for the Fellows. Small support grants from PHP (given through the presbytery, a congregation or local organization) may also be available to help the Fellows with food justice/local food economy events they may organize in their region. PHP will correspond with and do conference calls with the Fellows regularly (currently 2nd and 4th Thursdays at 4:00 pm (eastern time) to exchange ideas, share best practices, discuss readings and provide updates on the U.S. and global food sovereignty movement and related work inside and outside the church. The Presbyterian Hunger Program staff and Food Justice Fellows will provide each other with mutual support, accountability and camaraderie. Hunger Action Enablers, Mission Advocates and other leaders throughout the PCUSA are potential resources and connectors.
