A Feastival Celebration: Nourishing Healthy Communities with Food & Faith

The Center for Faith and Community Health Transformation invites you and your community – including children– to join us at

 A Feastival Celebration: Nourishing Healthy Communities with Food and Faith

at the Brookfield Zoo Discovery Center

8:30 am – 4:30 pm, Monday, October 10th, 2011 (school holiday for most Chicagoland schools).

As people of faith, we recognize that our health is influenced by many factors that go beyond eating or activity habits alone—relationships and ‘connectivity’, community support and being valued, spirituality and hope, justice and equity.  In order to improve the health of our communities, we need to continue the work of building beloved community.  The Feastival Celebration will help provide tools and ideas to make health and wholeness a social, community enhancing activity. This all-day interfaith summit – designed for clergy and layleaders — will introduce the connections between food, faith and health with engaging faith rituals, get-your-hands-dirty workshops, and healthy taste testing!

Join us on October 10th from 8:30am to 4:30pm and get re-energized about living healthfully and faithfully.
