One more blog post!
You may remember that I spent much of my time in the US hosted by the Rev Jeff Geary and the Rev Noelle Damico (and their son August!). Jeff is pastor of White Plains Presbyterian Church. Noelle is Associate for Fair Food at the Presbyterian Church’s Campaign for Fair Food. They were great company and generous hosts!
Noelle was also at the the Presbyterian General Assembly, in her capacity as a church staff member. It was good to have her company during that sometimes bewildering week. She has campaigned tirelessly on behalf of low-paid immigrant workers who produce much of America’s food, making big business think hard about their buying practices. It’s a kind of fair trade campaign!
A local White Plains church who produce TV programmes interviewed Noelle recently. This is a great programme in which Noelle explains what she does and why.
Many thanks once again to Jeff and Noelle for their hospitality!
