Mindful Eating for The Beloved Community
In today’s changing and challenging environment, health equity in the community remains an unaddressed crisis with fewer resources and tools to empower communities. This one-day event, held January 15, 2018 in Atlanta, GA, marks the launch of a nationwide initiative led by BCA Global to provide diverse communities with a thoughtful and engaged way to understand how and what we eat. This event will include workshops on mindfulness and food justice, an interactive Mindful Meal, presentations from social justice leaders working in health equity, using powerful community focused stories from the book— Mindful Eating for the Beloved Community.
Mindful Eating is a transformative program that uses powerful storytelling and culinary exercises to highlight the positive impact of mindfulness and nutrition. Created by a diverse group of chefs, nutritionists, and food activists, the program offers pragmatic strategies to rebuild the connections between diet, culture, faith, the environment and community well-being, with a focus on the deep connection between mindful eating, social justice and sustainability.
