Stories We Tell: People, Land, and Food Access

Stories We Tell: People, Land, and Food Access


June 22, 2024 10:00 am ET

Location: Corinth UMC | 23 W Williamsburg Rd, Sandston, VA 23150

This summit will focus on naming the stories we tell about hunger in our local communities, uncovering hidden narratives about the root causes of hunger, and using scripture, personal narrative, and other sacred stories to create new stories about food access. We hope this conversation leads to:

  • Greater capacity for faith leaders to engage their communities in addressing issues that cause food insecurity through innovative ministries and structural change work.
  • Increased number of faith leaders have received up-to-date information and skills about faith-based hunger relief issues and policy issues related to food and agriculture, as well as opportunities to advocate for just and inclusive policies.
  • Increased number of faith leaders are trained and engaged in narrative change strategies that challenge dominant narratives around why people are hungry, grounded in sound theological understanding.

This event will include light snacks, coffee, and lunch. To register, go to https://bit.ly/StoriesWeTellVA. For more information, please contact Jarred White at [email protected].
