Just back from walking, and walking and walking in USC's highest elevation programs, in Humla Nepal, Kate Green will bring to the fellowship stories and challenges from her recent trip. The phrase 'Namaste - where are you going' occurred hundreds of times a day as she and her Nepali colleagues encountered others on the trails. Where are these communities going as food systems, weather and society change?
Kate Green is the Program Manager for Nepal at USC Canada. Kate is also involved in USC's new program in Canada, and food justice activism in her own community of Ottawa.
We can’t help ourselves. The chips and pie are in the next room calling us away from the comfy couch and TV in the livingroom/mancave. It’s a natural response. But somehow we’re being told that carbs, fats and sweets are bad for us… along with too much time sitting on our duffs. Perhaps a new religion for the fittest might help!

Isn't it a great feeling when you prepare food for others and they respond favourably to your efforts! Have you ever thought of all the different people who are involved in the planting, growth, harvesting, shipping, packaging and sales of the foods we use? Have you ever thought how this might differ from how food gets to the table in other parts of the world? There is a spirituality to cooking that is worthy of sharing and discussion. On March 4th, we'll talk about these things.
