The Action Corps (formerly Oxfam Action Corps) hosts annual sustainability and food sovereignty meal. The evening event features home cooked meal using locally sourced ingredients. Volunteers to help are welcome. No need to RSVP, all are welcome. Contact Kathy Chavez, KChavez@salud.unm.edu, to volunteer to help with preparation.
Interfaith Service
First Unitarian Church, 
3701 Carlisle Blvd. NE, ABQ
Sunday, October 16, 3-4:30 p.m.
Join people of all faith traditions in commemorating Food Day. An interfaith service of prayer linking food, climate change, immigration and economic justice will feature scripture readings, reflections, music and dance from the Sikh, Baha'i, Jewish, Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, Native American and other communities. The prayer will lead people to make a commitment to address hunger, climate change, immigration and economic justice through direct service or policy advocacy. Refreshments and hospitality (including a langar meal hosted by the Sikh community) will close the interfaith prayer time. 

 Those who would like to be part of a pick-up choir led by David Poole or sacred dance group led by Keri Sutter for the service, please come at 1:30 p.m. on Oct. 16 to prepare. All are welcome to participate!
