What it Means for Advocates:

Host a Shabbat meal for your friends and/or family.  When it comes time to recite the blessings for the wine and bread, use it as a teachable moment and educate your guests about the origins of the foods that they are about to consume.  Facilitate a conversation about food choices and what people are or are not eating and why.  Why are they making these choices?  Are there any trends or patterns amongst your guests?
