Planted assists congregations and organizations to launch sustainable community meals and other food programs, to re-imagine and re-invigorate existing programs, and to participate in the larger food security movement. Best practices are documented in A Table for All: a toolkit for Christian community meals in a framework of food justice (2020).   

This takes the form of tailored consulting, access to expertise, invitational roundtables, and workshops on topics such as: 

  • The continuum of responses to hunger within a sustainable local food system 
  • Recruiting and training passive guests or program participants to take active roles in the design and implementation of programs 
  • Safe food handling practices  
  • Nutrition assessment and menu planning 
  • Consensus standards of food quality and program success 
  • Trauma-informed care, boundaries, navigating grief, and understanding addictions 
  • Theology of food, spirituality of Christian hospitality
