In Peru, we feel blessed by the diversity of vegetables, fruits, menestras (grains) and other plants that Mother Earth produces to help us to enjoy a sustainable and healthy diet.
I entered into this lifestyle to be healthier, but the more I learn about the effects of adopting a plant-based diet can have on the environment and other sentient beings, the more committed I become.
This Earth Month, join us in reflecting on the food choices that we make and their impact on the planet. We’ll be sharing reflections and calls to action from some of our sisters, associates and friends that we hope will inspire you to explore if there are any food choices you wish to make differently.
These two stories come from sisters who have traveled to Mexicali, Mexico with the new organization Border Compassion. Its mission is to invite faith communities to cross over at the U.S./Mexico border and offer a compassionate humanitarian response.
