Food shapes us. From the time we are born, our world revolves, at least in part, around nourishing our body. As children, we are introduced to customs and traditions that may become a cornerstone of our family dynamic. Whether it’s nightly meals together, microwave dinner in front of the TV, eating a protein bar as you run out the door, or the mix of relief and fear that comes with each bite when you don’t know if it will be your last, the way we eat plays an integral part in our growing up. Our relationship with food is often intrinsically tied to our relationship with our body, our community, and our mental and physical health. Food is social and may be wrapped up in ideas of worth and community. It is also grounding, and a well-fed body is more able to learn and grow. So, what happens when a crisis strikes?
