For almost a decade, a group of women from around Macon of various faiths, Judaism, Islam and Christianity, have been meeting in an effort to push back against the misunderstandings between their faiths and to foster a sense of community.
Over the years they’ve had book clubs and service projects, but one constant in their group is their monthly lunches. Now, inspired by those lunches, the Women’s Interfaith Alliance of Central Georgia is putting together a cook book full of the recipes that have fed the members along their journey.
