Fancy a day out in Preston? The Commission is offering to reimburse public transport costs to attend this day about our food system. Meet people from across northern dioceses who are concerned about our food system. This event has been organised by the Northern Dioceses' Environment Group (NDEG).

Who is this event for?

NDEG invite parishes and individuals from across the North of England to come along to this day.

Come along if you want to

  • find out more about how our food supply system links to our faith
  • see what actions are being taken in Lancashire to create a more sustainable food supply system
  • Find out more about how poverty and food are linked
  • meet others from across the North of England want to live more sustainably and meet the challenges that Pope Francis set out in Laudato Si

What will happen?

Francis Stewart from the CAFOD Theology team will provide an initial reflection about food and faith.

Anna Clayton from Food Futures in Lancaster will show how local community based practical action can be part of a global movement calling for food system transformation, food sovereignty and food security.

Allison Light from Morecambe Bay Poverty Truth Commission will share food insecurity from the perspective of lived experience.

There will be a Fairtrade stall and a plant and seed-swap stall. If you have any excess seeds or seedlings then bring some along and swap them for something else! There will also be a stall about how microplastics are affecting our food.
