COVID-19 Email #3: Information for Your Gatherings

March 29, 2020

Dear FA Members,

We hope this finds you and your families well and safe. Since our last communication, members of the World Service Board have heard positive reports about what many of you are doing in your phone and online gatherings. We have also received multiple requests for more guidance and structure. 

In this difficult environment, the board is continuing to discuss ways to maintain the unity of our local fellowships, stay connected to other food addicts, hold strongly to the tools of the program, and ultimately stay abstinent with the guidance of our sponsors and our Higher Powers. The issues are difficult and complex, and of course we have not always agreed with one another. We have all been humbled in various ways through this process. 

We have now agreed on the agenda located here as a possible option for your gatherings. We hope you find this useful.

Let’s continue to ask our Higher Power to help us remain hopeful and stay abstinent. This too shall (eventually) pass and we are all in this together.

In gratitude and service,

The World Service Board

Be calm, be true, be quiet...Feel a deep, inner security in the goodness and purpose in the universe.
