Food for Thought Drive for Advent
We are hosting a FOOD DRIVE during the first week of Advent.
But this is not a typical food drive—it’s more of a food for thought drive—an effort to raise awareness about making environmentally considerate choices in the area of food. And who doesn’t have food on their mind around the holidays? Each day in this first week of Advent (from Dec. 4-8) we will share some “food for thought” on Facebook and Instagram @sanrafaelop—please follow and share with your friends and family! Hopefully, there will be some ideas and concepts you can readily consider putting into practice and/or giving some thought.
A little background to whet your pallet:
OPartners—a special group made up of Sisters and lay partners was formed to study, reflect, and then act in terms of a response to Pope Francis’ call in Laudato Si’. Over the past year, they have worked to identify goals and priorities that have been added to the global Laudato Si’ Action Platform. A couple areas of focus surfaced from their study, and the group has committed to making improvements in the areas of water usage and our carbon footprint. As part of their ongoing learning, the group hosted three guest speakers in the fall: a water conservation specialist of Marin Municipal Water District (MMWD); the Director of Stewardship at Marin Agricultural Land Trust (MALT); and a representative from Zero Waste Marin and Senior Planner for Waste Management for Marin County.
Our education and outreach efforts are inherently Dominican, and our group wishes to share their knowledge through action and engagement with others. Enjoy the “drive” and thanks for helping to share our messages for maximum impact.
