What is HMA?

A convergence of health promotion and religious beliefs.

The Health Ministries Association (HMA) encourages, supports and empowers leaders who integrate faith with the promotion of health and wholeness in local communities.

Our membership is made up of health ministers, faith community nurses, clergy, chaplains, faculty, and program leaders who have developed and provide health ministries in diverse faith communities. . . . read more . . .

The United Nations Food Systems Summit, happening in 2021, is a global effort to raise awareness of the importance of creating food systems that are nutritious, sustainable, equitable, and resilient. As part of this effort, the UN is hoping to engage as much of civil society as possible, and asking for everyone to submit a 1-minute video answering the question, “What does good food mean to you?”

The Faith + Food Coalition convened by the Center for Earth Ethics is participating in this activity, and we ask you to participate as well. Here is my video. Now it’s your turn. What does good food mean to you?
I’m also hoping we can connect this to a campaign to educate our elected officials about what good food means to us and why it’s important to pass national climate and agricultural policies.
Join us!
