For centuries and across cultures, people have shared food and drink together as a symbol of love, respect, trust, friendship, and more. Breaking bread together is timeless. It gathers people together around something we all have in common – eating. And who doesn’t love to eat!? This collection seeks to share those stories and recipes with the community and celebrate the different ways we come together and connect through food. How does food build community? How do our traditions with food relate to our health? How does food break down barriers and overcome stereotypes? How do our environments affect accessibility to and our relationship with food? These collections seek to explore these questions and more.
