The NY Times notices that food is a religious issue

though it's too bad that so little attention is given to mainstream and liberal protestantism. Or do we care as much about the ethics of eating as Roman Catholics, conservative evangelicals, and observant Jews?

The Episcopal prayer book designates all Fridays (except in Christmas and Easter) and all weekdays of Lent (except Annunciation) as "Days of Special Devotion," to be "observed by special acts of discipline and devotion." Although the rubric does not mention food, our tradition certainly includes that.
