The BBC has covered rising food prices on the Radio 4 today programme. I’m not sure whether you can listen to this clip outside the UK (I would be interested to know-leave a comment). Two of the interviewees (one from a supermarket) emphasise the oil dependency of food. Both these interviewees also think that food prices will continue to rise and that the poorest will be hit hardest. There is role here for the church and I’m not talking about food banks (see here). As one of the few community groups left the church should be setting up community market gardening projects and helping others do the same. We tried to find examples of this happening for “No oil in the lamp” but failed. Please contact us if you know of such a project and we will include it in a future edition.
Please continue to like us on Facebook (“No oil in the lamp”) and vote in the poll on the right hand side. Ta.
