Ten Commandments of Food

The Ten Commandments of Food (pdf) is a resource for Food Week that PHP helped the WCC’s Food for Life Campaign develop. Accompanying the Ten Commandments is this educational tool for congregations.  It has theological reflections and steps for faithful action on each of the 10 commandments of food.
