From Her Kitchen, Kathy Chavez Invites You to a World Food Day Meal

Every weekend during the summer and fall months, Kathy Chavez acquires a basket  or two of produce at the Albuquerque Downtown Growers Market and/or the Corrales Growers market. The produce varies from week to week, depending on what  is available. Then she puts together a video (worthy of the Food Network and  the Cooking Channel) and tells us about the many  ways in which she used the produce.

In video below, Kathy also took the opportunity to give a plug to the Sustainability Meal that Action Corps is planing on Saturday, October 15, 6:00-8:00 p.m. at St. Thomas of Canterbury Episcopal Church, 425 University Blvd NE, Albuquerque.The meal will be prepared entirely with produce acquired from the Downtown Growers Market to celebrate farmers and promote eating locally. This is one of two events planned on World Food Day weekend.

On Sunday afternoon (the actual World Food Day), New Mexico Interfaith Power and Light and the Interfaith Hunger Coalition are hosting One Earth, One Home, One Table, 3:00-4:30 p.m. at First Unitarian Church, 3701 Carlisle NE in Albuquerque.  This is an interfaith service of prayer linking food, climate change, immigration and economic justice, featuring 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.

Both World Food Day events are free and open to the public.
