Hungry for Change explores the true meaning of the phrase “you are what you eat.” In a six session schedule, this discussion course challenges participants to examine their roles, not only as consumers of food, but also as creators — of food, of systems, and of the world we all live in. Each session includes readings, short assignments and accompanying group discussion questions that address the impact of individual food choices on a range of issues, including ecosystem health, the treatment of factory and farm workers, and the global economy. Hungry for Change helps participants are also invited to commit to lasting change by developing and sharing personal action plans with each session.
Study Circles are a great way to come together with other community members in an informal, yet inquisitive, atmosphere to deeply explore issues of social and environmental concern. The discussion courses provide an enjoyable, supportive setting in which to examine personal values and habits, engage in stimulating conversation, create meaningful community, and consider ways to take action towards creating a more sustainable future.
There is no outside presenter or teacher of these discussion courses. Rather, anyone can organize a group in their community with the role of facilitator rotating with each meeting.
Be sure to reserve your spot in this study circle today as limited spaces fill fast. The group will meet Thursdays between 7:00 and 8:30pm at a meeting space above the Made on Earth shop, 33 North Main Street in downtown Wolfeboro, January 5th through February 9th. Course books are $21. Contact Pat Jones to reserve your post by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 603-569-0031.
