Faith and Food

Life Lessons from the Table: Recipes to Feed the Body, Stories to Nourish Your Soul by M. Dudley Rose, pastor, McDonough Presbyterian Church.

An amateur cook, Dudley Rose has long wanted to write about scripture’s teaching on hospitality, especially as they relate to meals recorded in the Bible. In this, his first book, he draws on experiences at the range and oven and gatherings over food at home and church, transforming them into lessons for living as followers of Jesus. Amply illustrated with insights from both contemporary and ancient sources, his book is a relaxed, sometimes lighthearted read.

The PC(USA)-backed Coalition of Immokalee Workers (CIW) and Burger King Corporation announced plans to work together to improve wages and conditions for the farmworkers who harvest tomatoes for the hamburger chain.

According to the World Bank, global food prices have climbed by 83% over the last three years. For more information about the causes of the crisis and it’s impact on impoverished people:

Welcome to the new PATH weblog!

The official site of the hunger program of the Presbytery of Greater Atlanta.

This site will be a resource for information about hunger and poverty issues, news about PATH activities and projects, profiles of church hunger ministries and much more!

Thank you 2008 Hunger Walkers!

Walkers and Runners from churches in the presbytery raised over$5,000 for PATH. Funds raised this year will be used to support the start-up of food cooperatives in low-income neighborhoods in metro Atlanta.
