10 Commandments of Food & Food Week

The Food Week of Action is the week from Sunday through Sunday surrounding World Food Day on October 16!

The Ten Commandments of Food (pdf) is a resource for Food Week that PHP helped the WCC’s Food for Life Campaign develop. Accompanying the Ten Commandments is this educational tool for congregations.  It has theological reflections and steps for faithful action on each of the 10 commandments of food, four of which are pictured here:ten-command

People and Planet First

People and Planet First is the theme of this year’s Oct. 10–17 Food Week of Action. ‘People and Planet First’ mean prioritizing family farmers, fishers and others producing in harmony with nature – agroecologically – and achieving food sovereignty. As communities continue to face the pandemic and vulnerable food chains, we realize the necessity of building resilient agricultural systems that protect and cool the planet and put farmers and workers first. This year’s Food Week will highlight groups and initiatives that are building equitable and sustainable food systems, while also tackling the economic and racial drivers of hunger, poverty, and oppression.
