Blessing for Thanks
This food is the gift from God and much hard work by man. May we eat it with mindfulness and gratitude so as to be worthy to receive it. May we recognize and transform our greed and learn to eat with moderation. May we have compassion and eat in such a way that we reduce suffering and preserve our planet. We accept this food so we can nurture our brothers and sisters, strengthen our community, and nourish and serve all living beings.
