Food for Thought Group
Food For Thought – a Healthier You, a Healthier Planet gives us a platform to discuss our dietary habits and how the foods we eat impact not only our own health and well-being, but also our environment. We view videos, have book discussions, provide resources and share recipes to encourage each other to maintain healthier and more environmentally friendly diets. We meet on the second Thursday of each month.
For more information contact the church office.
