Feeding the multitudes . . . .

Hosting a multi-faith event? What about the food? I was thinking about what kind of menu would anchor a religiously-universal meal, when competing moral, culture and ethical demands threaten to make something as important as a meal impossible.

But it’s not impossible. I used Google to find this helpful page from the Inter Faith Network for the United Kingdom. A good thing too: I would have totally messed up the Jains.

Catering for multi faith events

  1. This is the first intelligent article on feeding the multitudes that I’ve seen.

    I attended the UUA GA in Long Beach in 2004, and, as a vegan, found it almost impossible to find appropriate food at or near the event. I’ve also attended four UUCF revivals, and am happy to report that you (Scott) had a lot to do with planning the Revival that went out of it’s way to provide food for the multitudes.

    Thanks again,
