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.

In 2008, the UUA General Assembly chose Ethical Eating: Food and Environmental Justice for study and action, and then in 2011, a Statement of Conscience on Ethical Eating was adopted and an Ethical Eating Study Guide* was written.
