Food Worthy of a Blessing
Living in Los Angeles, Sarah has year-round access to food grown locally and sustainably. Buying from such farmers enables her to financially support local agriculture. But, more deeply, she finds that it connects me to the values and practices of her faith. Is a pesticide-laden apple from an industrial farm, picked by undocumented child farmworker worthy of a blessing? For Sarah, the answer is no. But, what she does find worthy of a blessing is an organic apple from a small, family farmer who treats his workers with dignity and fair pay.
