Eat, Pray, Grow
Exploring the connections between food, faith and justice
Eat, Pray, Grow is a multi-media and multi-sensory curriculum designed to help you and your congregation consider the ways in which their experience of food shapes their lives and what steps they might take to more fully recognize food as a gift from God.
The 5-session curriculum includes
- Coordinator's introduction
- Session guidelines for presenter
- PowerPoint presentations
- Weekly handouts

Each session begins with a meal, exploring different aspects of the ways food is prepared and experienced from pre-packaged food to kosher dishes. Session coordinators are provided with a PowerPoint presentation and a guideline to assist them in leading lecture and discussion as the meal draws to a close. Session 1 helps the congregation discover what food means in their faith community; Session 2 is a brief history of food; Session 3 discusses food in the Bible; and Session 4 explores food in your local community.
The final session encourages your congregation to think about next steps they can take as individuals and as a church community to buy, eat, and share food faithfully through Easter and all year round.
