AmpleHarvest.org's virtual interfaith program called "Food Waste Weekend" (www.FoodWasteWeekend.org) educates America's clergy (Christian, Jewish, Hindu, Buddhist, Muslim and Unitarian) about food waste from the faith perspective AND enables them to give faith specific sermons on the topic - all on the same weekend.
The goal is to have the clergy give the sermons - and calls to action - to their congregants with the hope that many of the people in the pews will reduce the waste of food in their lives, and hunger in America.
This has been endorsed by the National Council of Churches and other groups.
Food Waste Weekend will take place in Sept 2018.
We are looking to assemble a team of people - especially those well connected in the faith community - to manage and promote the event.
The site and material already exists. What will be needed will be working to get as many faith organizations and clergy aware of it as possible, as fast as possible.
We are in need of people who know how to reach the largest number of clergy and engage them.
Ideally the team will consist of several people who are of different faiths working collaboratively to roll this out.
One member of the team will help to coordinate the work of the entire team.
Your location is not important. Your network with in the faith community as well as your ability to reach them is.
This is your chance to help 300,000 clergy in America have a major impact on hunger, the environment and the future of their community.
