Shared Challenge: We wanted to provide resources for a “catch up” which will allow you to take stock of the progress you have made so far and reflect on what you might like to do differently moving forward. We have also provided some “food for thought” on industrial food waste and your food footprint.
Here are updated resources to help you preserve your food longer and get creative with ingredients you’ve got on hand.
Food for thought:
Looking for a way to address food disparity in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis?: If you are able, consider donating to the Feeding America COVID-19 Response Fund.
Looking for prayer to supplement your fast? Check out these daily reflections from Lent 2020 on food, faith, and climate inspired by the Lenten Food Waste Fast.
We would love to hear about your #LentenFoodWasteFast journey! Tag us on Instagram @ignatiansolidarity or use the hashtag. Don’t have Instagram? Share pictures via our report-back form.
