SMUUF knows the value of ‘homegrown’
By CANDICE BRUSUELAS
The San Marcos Unitarian Universalist Fellowship (SMUUF) is on a mission to make the world we live in a better place, and seem to hold nothing back in their efforts to assist the community of San Marcos. More specifically, SMUUF has been working to help get fresh food back to the people of San Marcos and food on the plates of less fortunate San Marcans.
Hays County Food Bank Coordinator Jane Moore calls SMUUF their “most loyal year-round supporters.” In addition to making donations to the Food Bank and helping purchase foods, they have also been planting and growing their own for the Food Bank’s “Fresh Quest” initiative. The initiative is to purchase and provide fresh produce from local sources to those who need the food bank’s help.
“Our church, the Unitarian Universalist Church, has always been very environmentally responsible,” says Jeannie Lewis, SMUUF’s social justice chair. “We have seven principles that guide what we do. One of them is respect for the independent web of which we are all a part. What that means is that we’re very concerned about the environment as a religious group.”
