Food as Resistance

What does food access look like during an international lockdown? What intergenerational knowledge can be passed through food and cooking? Is a statement of what we eat a statement of who we are? Backlit by the events of 2020, our project navigates the intersection of food, identity, and community. Spanning three interviews, we explore how people use food to relate to their individual pasts, and to the more immediate realities of the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes a cooking demonstration between family members, reflections on how our relationship with food can evolve with our identities over time, and examples of what implications food can have for our health beyond physical needs.
