FOOD WASTE: YOU'LL BE AMAZED
We love food. As a society, we devour countless cooking shows, culinary magazines and foodie blogs. So how could we possibly be throwing nearly 50% of it in the trash?
In a special service this Sunday, we will take an entertaining look at the real problem of food waste, with documentary clips featuring filmmakers and food lovers Jen and Grant, who dive into the issue of waste from farm, through retail, all the way to the back of their own fridge. After catching a glimpse of the billions of dollars of good food that is tossed each year in North America, they pledge to quit grocery shopping cold turkey and survive only on foods that would otherwise be thrown away. In a nation where one in 10 people is food insecure, the images they capture of squandered groceries are both shocking and strangely compelling.
LUUF's organic garden has wrapped up another season of supporting the Wayne Interfaith Network Food Pantry with donations of fresh produce. The offerings consisted of lettuce, kale, tomatoes and much more. One Monday's harvest, pictured below, shows LUUF's organic gardeners tending the beds, picking what's ready, and the weekly delivery to Herb Schuman, vice president and coordinator of the pantry, where it was distributed to appreciative clients later that day.
The Garden Committee can always use your help! If interested, please see Rose H., Pat K. or Steve K.
Our community welcomes you, and your family.
Join us every Sunday for provocative programs featuring music, meditation, fellowship and spiritual connection.

Unitarian Universalist congregations affirm and promote seven Principles, which we hold as strong values and moral guides. We live out these Principles within a “living tradition” of wisdom and spirituality, drawn from sources as diverse as science, poetry, scripture, and personal experience.
Unitarian Universalism is a liberal tradition in which congregants are encouraged to find the commonality and truth in many religious teachings while fostering strong roots in community and service.
