As author of "Dinner Dilemmas," I'm impressed by the excellent company that article keeps in this magazine. A great issue of the UU World, indeed!

Folks interested in the topic of ethical eating will want to know that the UUA just released beautiful new Resource Guide. Produced by a nationwide team of UUs representing different perspectives (which I chaired), the Guide explores how personal food choices impact climate change, trade, hunger, animal welfare, labor, ecological destruction, neocolonialism, environmental justice, and more!

If you take two seconds to look at the Guide at [pdf; 6.65M]

you'll see it's beautifully illustrated and invites you to explore every page.

More importantly, it provides plenty of ways to learn about the complex (and sometimes daunting) issues involved in eating, with tools for further individual or group exploration. Enjoy!
