Our Daily Bread: Food Security, People and Planet
16-18 July, Hayes Conference Centre, Swanwick, Derbyshire
This event is organized by the National Justice and Peace Network Environment Working Group and Lancaster Diocese Faith and Justice Commission.
CEL is strongly supporting this conference which has an exciting line up of talks, panels and workshops, with a number of CEL members among the speakers and on the organising committee.
In line with the focus of the conference the meals provided will, as far as possible, accord with CEL's LOAF principles (Locally produced, Organically grown, Animal friendly, Fairly traded.)
Food is so essential a part of our lives that the 'breaking of bread' with others celebrates love, mutuality and the gifts of the natural world. Yet the global food system upon which we depend is increasingly fragile. One in six people in the world goes hungry, low-income groups have trouble accessing nutritious food and justice is denied to many of the world's food producers. The conference will explore the food system and exciting new initiatives to help us reconnect to sustainable agriculture and food, and highlight insights into 'our daily bread' offered by our faith and worship.
Cost for whole weekend is from £124 per person. A booking form is available from
