mindful eating

for the beloved community

Created by a diverse group of chefs, nutritionists, and food activists, Mindful Eating for The Beloved Community offers strategies to rebuild the connections between diet, culture, faith, the environment and community well-being, with a focus on the deep connection between mindful eating, social justice and sustainability.

Vision - Alex Askew

“It’s up to individuals, families and communities to figure out how to help themselves. But we wanted to help show them ways towards that empowerment. I think that this book could be a change-maker in terms of empowering communities around health equity.”


The Mindful Eating conference in Atlanta, GA, marks the launch of the nationwide initiative and includes workshops on mindfulness and food justice, an interactive Mindful Meal, presentations from social-justice leaders working in health equity and a reading from the book.

“Our goal is to create a beloved community and this will require a qualitative change in our souls as well as a quantitative change in our lives.”
