Ethical Eating: Food and Environmental Justice
As part of our dedication to environmental justice, we pay attention to the impact of our involvement in the food system. Ethical eating recognizes the moral consequences of our food choices. The ways our societies raise, buy, and consume our food has direct effects on the earth, plants and animals, and humans who work to make our food available.
In 2011, Unitarian Universalists (UUs) came together to take a stand on ethical eating and adopted a statement of conscience on the issue. To help Unitarian Universalist congregations and individuals live into our commitments, a President's Advisory Committee on Ethical Eating was formed. This group, now called Food Justice Ministry, has a website with resources for ongoing engagement with Food Justice.
