A Better Bean Supper

Bean Supper – A Maine Tradition with a Healthy Twist

The Maine Council of Churches has created a downloadable resource kit for churches and other groups that are interested in offering a new version of the traditional bean “suppah” or other community meals. We have suggestions for healthier versions of favorite recipes. We’ve also included local sources for produce and other goods so your meal will support your community farmers and other local businesses. Locally farmed foods are generally better for the environment as the goods do not travel thousands of miles to reach our dinner plates. And many local farms practice organic and other environmentally friendly methods of production.

So enjoy this twist on a Maine tradition. . .a Bean Suppah that is good for personal health, the local economy and the environment. Call or email the Maine Council of Churches for more information.
