My faculty recently held our annual community dinner. The theme this year was Rustic Roots, and each of the five courses included a personal story about reconnecting to our food. My classmates and friends spoke about their connections with food. Everyone’s story about connecting to the roots of their food was different. Some people’s stories involved catching fish with their family, others involved the creative side to food, and some stories were about the connections we make eating as a family. Their stories inspired me to further explore my story and the connections I have with my food.
