Panel to discuss care for creation in terms of food

Holy Trinity Church, 501 Cherrywood Road, is beginning a year-long focus on Pope Francis’ call to care for creation with a panel discussion called “Living Laudato Si’: Food.”

The program’s title comes from the Holy Father’s encyclical on creation, “Laudato Si’: On Care for Our Common Home.”

The event is set for Jan. 17 at 7 p.m. in the parish multipurpose building. The discussion will center on food’s meaning, preservation, storage and disposal. Practical ideas for individuals and families will be shared.

Panelists are:

Tim Darst of Kentucky Interfaith Power and Light will discuss reducing food waste as a sacred act.

Hank Levitt, a chef at the Catholic Charities’ Common Table culinary training program, will discuss purchasing and storing food to reduce waste.

Bethany Pratt of the Jefferson County Cooperative Extension Office will discuss composting.

There is no cost to participate, but those interested in attending are asked to RSVP by Jan. 15 by contacting Therese Caruso at tcaruso or 897-5207.
