Aff_CafesDepending on the origin of our food, clothes, cosmetics or household goods, our seemingly innocent actions can contribute to human and environmental disasters somewhere on the globe.  The Rana Plaza disaster in Bangladesh highlighted the direct links between our consumer choices here in the UK and lives overseas.

Ethical choices and consumerism is the topic of our next Peace Café, on Tuesday 17 March at 6pm at LBFN’s home at Collaboration House, 77 Charlotte Street, W1T 4PW (Goodge Street tube).

Our special guest is Shehroze Khan from MADE in Europe, a grassroots faith-based charity raising awareness about environmental protection, justice and poverty, and our conversation will include diverse views and a wide range of experiences.

Let us know if you plan to come along.  Bring a little food (veggie) to share.  Everyone can brew the change.  We look forward to seeing you there!

The meaning of Jerusalem – Peace Café

The meaning of Jerusalem – Peace Café

Peace Cafe 1A rich discussion on what Jerusalem means to us from our different traditions – at the first Peace Café.  Not the easiest of topics – but we learned from each other’s stories, experiences and from our shared and diverse histories.

People brought delicious food from across the continents: Bangladeshi biscuits, a fragrant rose water dish from Mauritius, rice and dal from India, dates from North Africa, trifle from England, pizza from Italy and hummus from Israel.  It was a feast!

Join us next time on 12 January 6-8pm – bring a dish to share or bring ingredients to cook as we gather together.
