About

Food Healers, Los Angeles

Our latest event happened on Oct 16 in Santa Monica, CA. All are welcome!

Food Healers is a grassroots cooperative initiative that seeks to eliminate world hunger (UN SDG #2 – Zero Hunger) and rebuild our crumbling global industrial civilization on a foundation of robust health.

 

The COVID-19 pandemic created an upheaval in our industrial civilization. The World Food Program estimated that as a result of this pandemic, the number of food insecure people in the world doubled by the end of 2020. In the United States, it is estimated that 54 million people were food insecure by the end of 2020, a 50% increase from 2019 levels. In many cities, it is estimated that 1 in 5 or more children are food insecure today.

 

This does not have to be. We can solve our hunger problems and do it in a way that makes healthy, immune-boosting foods easily available to the most food insecure amongst us. In a family of 5, if 4 of us have plenty to eat, we would never let the fifth go hungry. Therefore, even if the number of food insecure people in the world doubles to 1.6 billion from 2019 levels, that would still leave 6.2 billion people who are food secure and who can help to alleviate the hunger pangs of their less fortunate neighbors.

 

The Unity Stew Recipe Template

Food Healers relies on the fact that healthy, immune-boosting, healthy Vegan meals can be created at very low cost especially when cooked in volume. As such, it begins with a simple template for a “Unity Stew” with common ingredients that can be procured at low cost. Many of the ingredients can be sourced locally so that the community can participate in the creation of the Unity Stew through local growing efforts.

Here’s the recipe template for the Unity Stew (serves 5):

Ingredients:

2 cups cooked legumes (red/black/pinto beans or lentils) – 20c

2 cups mixed vegetables, cut and cubed (typically potatoes, carrots, celery, sweet potatoes, squash, pumpkin, etc.) – 40c

1 cup grains (whole grain pasta, brown rice, barley etc.) – 20c

1 medium onion – 30c

1 tomato – 40c

Juice of 1 lime or lemon – 30c

1/2 inch stick of ginger – 20c

1 cup chopped herbs and greens (rosemary, thyme, cilantro, spinach, kale, chard, etc.) – 40c

salt and spices to taste

1/2 tsp turmeric powder – 5c

pinch of asafetida – 5c

4 cups water

Total cost – $2.50 retail for 5 meals, based on Costco prices

Recipe:

Puree onion, tomato and ginger into a paste. Bring water to boil, add cut vegetables, tomato onion paste, turmeric, lemon juice, asafetida, spices and salt. (The ginger and asafetida serve to alleviate “gasiness” from the beans and lentils.) Simmer until vegetables are cooked. Add cooked beans, herbs and greens, and grains. Simmer for 10mins or until grains are cooked. Set stew to cool. Powder 1 500mcg Cyanocobalamin Vitamin B12 tablet, mix into the stew and serve (Please note that 20mcg of Cyanocobalamin Vitamin B12 is an adequate supplement per serving). Makes 8 cups of stew or 5 servings.

All are cordially invited

You can make a huge impact with your actions and advocacy

Many of us are already Vegan in our hearts. The birthing of a post pandemic Vegan World will likely be viewed as the “greatest transformation in human history,” even though it is just a return home to who we really are.
