Reading Area Green Christians – Food for Life

Welcome to our resources about food. You can download the leaflets and the discussion materials. The leaflets can be printed back to back and used flexibly for personal study, for distribution in church or for church group meetings. Each of our leaflets contains a prayer or Biblical reflection, key facts, practical ideas for you or your church group to consider doing, and links to useful online resources. The discussion materials are extra ideas and contain links to useful short videos and websites that provide opportunities for discussion.

Beneath the leaflets you will find links to local opportunities for action on this in the Reading area.

You can find out about supporting Reading’s food bank at the Readifood website.

There are opportunities to buy locally grown produce at RISC on London Street, the True Food Co-op in Emmer Green, Thames Valley Farmers Market in Great Knollys Street on 1st and 3rd Saturdays, or from Tolhurst Organics (check their veg box delivery map here).

Greater Reading Environmental Network have a directory of local groups concerned about food and the environment which you may find useful.

Check you are putting the right things in your food waste bin and see what happens to it on your local council website for Reading or Wokingham.
