Front Cover
Wipf and Stock Publishers, Jun 12, 2019 - Health & Fitness - 146 pages
This book is an exploration of how we share food with others, particularly our vulnerable neighbors. In these pages, some of Vancouver's more colorful souls will tell us about the costs of poverty and privilege, as well as the long, slow heart shifts we experience on the journey toward healthier eating. Sharing food and making a space where those on the margins are welcomed is both delightful and difficult. There is no manual on how to do this. No two moments are ever the same, and the way each of us prefers to eat is as unique and personal as our signatures. Through these stories, we can hopefully learn to nourish ourselves and our neighbors a little better. Do these pages contain the recipe for a happier colon? And a happier soul? Pick up this book to find out.
