Use LOAF placemats at your church harvest festival or at a meal you arrange for friends..
PRESS RELEASE 15 Oct 2001The Bishop of Hereford, the Church of England's Environment Spokesman, is backing Christian Ecology Link's 'LOAF' principles on food, intended to encourage food which is Locally produced, Organically grown, Animal friendly and Fairly traded.
"Use your Loaf" says Christian Ecology Link, as Bishop backs new approach to food.
Addressing CEL's conference on Christianity, Food and Land Use at Ryton Organic Gardens on 13th October, Bishop John Oliver said
LOAF is a particularly appropriate acronym because bread, a staple food, is full of symbolic meaning for Christians, as when Jesus is described in St John's Gospel as The bread of life*.
Trying wherever possible to buy local produce, grown organically, without synthetic chemicals, where farm animals are treated well and the farmer given a fair price makes good sense for people and planet alike. If we want a better world, we really must use our LOAF"
