Event Description

The one-day on MLK Day event includes workshops on mindfulness and food justice, an interactive Mindful Meal prepared by BCA Chef Professionals, social justice leaders working in health equity, and the official launch of the Mindful Eating for The Beloved Community book.

Atlanta, GA, December 23, 2017 --(PR.com)-- Supported and sponsored by Aetna, Marriott, I-Lead and Hobart/ITW the Mindful Eating for the Beloved Community (MEBC) conference to be held at the Marriott Marquis in Atlanta, GA marks the launch of a nationwide initiative to provide diverse communities with a thoughtful and engaged way to understand nutrition and the external influences that impact how and what we eat. The one-day event includes workshops on mindfulness and food justice, an interactive Mindful Meal prepared by BCA Chef Professionals, presentations from social justice leaders working in health equity, and the official launch of the Mindful Eating for The Beloved Community book, a collection of essays and powerful stories by chefs, nutritionists, and food activists offering strategies to rebuild the connections between diet, culture, faith, the environment, and community. Organized by Chef Alex Askew and published by Arch Street Press, Mindful Eating for the Beloved Community explores the intersection between food and social justice as well as the need to address the patterns of eating that leave us undernourished—physically and spiritually.

“Food Equity is tied into all things economic—community, productivity and profitability—it makes sense to move this forward nationally,” comments Alex Askew, President of BCA Global.

In today’s changing and challenging environment, health equity in the community remains an unaddressed crisis with fewer resources and tools to empower communities. Supporting the MEBC initiative not only increases understanding of the health disparities that exist, but also provides the action plan for families to improve their health and create sustainable results.

As Black in Government Chair of Health and Wellness Bettie Hudson comments, “Eating Healthy is Eating Well and Eating Right Leads to a Long Healthy Life."
