Food and the Holidays

As we gather with our families to give thanks for God’s many blessings, we take a moment to remember those less fortunate than we are. Nick Chakos, Executive Director of FOCUS North America, and long-time board member Theodora Polamalu join Fr. Chris in discussing the urgent need in this country, as well as several FOCUS programs that are making a huge difference in people’s lives. But first, many of us may not realize that the Thanksgiving feast we look forward to is a source of severe anxiety for others. Marina Abdel Malak shares her experience as a recovering anorexic with us, offering tips about how we can be sensitive to those with eating disorders or dietary restrictions during the holiday season. Marina also shares her insights at Anorexia Recovery.
