World Food Day Meal Emphasizes Importance of Local Sourcing

The Action Corps (formerly Oxfam Action Corps) commemorated World Food Day by hosting its annual sustainability and food sovereignty meal. 

The event, held at St. Thomas of Canterbury Episcopal Church in Albuquerque, featured a home cooked meal using locally sourced ingredients. This helps protect the environment and supports local farmers.  Many of the  ingredients for the meal were acquired from the Albuquerque Downtown Growers Market.  Kudos to Kathy Chavez, Amanda Dezan and Russell Brown for this successful event.

The Interfaith Hunger Coalition and New Mexico Interfaith Power and Light supported this meal, which was held on the Saturday before our own One Earth, One Home, One Table commemoration.
