Ethicureans Meet at UUCOC

An ethicurean is a person who enjoys good food and at the same time makes ethical food choices.

The term ethicurean comes from two ideas. The first is epicurean, one who has a discriminating palate for the enjoyment of good food and drink. The second idea is ethical eating, choosing foods and processing methods that are healthy and do not negatively impact others.

Ethicureans is on hiatus for the summer. Watch for details on the new fall schedule.

Over a three-month period last Fall, an ethical eating forerunner course explored how food modifications and chemical additions effected those eating the food. The class investigated the environmental impact of the land and the social impact of laborers used in producing various food products. The group looked at how difficult it was to obtain healthy and tasty food in Oak Cliff and other food dessert areas of Dallas. Finally, budgetary considerations were discussed.

The Oak Cliff Ethicureans will continue to explore these topics while considering possible solutions. Members will test ethical recipes with an eye to the accessibility and the budget. The group will look into community gardening, locally grown food sources, community supported agriculture shares, and other options. Potluck lunches will be enjoyed during the meetings.

The potluck meetings will be held the third Sunday of each month at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Oak Cliff, 3839 West Kiest Boulevard, Dallas, Texas 75233. The group is open to everyone and there is no charge.
