Just Eating: a free seven-session program on the relationship between our faith and our food by the Presbyterian Hunger Commission includes a Middle-School curriculum and a Leader's Guide and Participant Guide for congregational use. Thanks to our Presbyterian colleagues for sharing this resource.
"The curriculum explores how practicing our faith is foundational to meaningful and healthy living, for ourselves, for the earth and for others in the world. In particular, the program asks us to consider how eating—one of the most basic human activities—is an invitation to experience God and to journey with others in the world."
