Finding Connection Through Food

Dec 22, 2021

When was the last time you sat around the kitchen table eating a meal with your family and friends? What did you talk about? Did you laugh, tell stories, share your feelings, learn about each-other?

Food is a tool for connection. Throughout history, the greatest connector among humans has been food. It is how we learned to exist in community together by sharing resources. When we gather for a meal, we come together for a common mission, to feed our minds, bodies, and souls. All of our differences fade away, because in that moment we are all the same. We are all simply humans here to nourish ourselves.

When you make a meal, you are combining ingredients from all over the world. Spices from across an ocean, produce from your local farm, and vegetables maybe grown in your own backyard. All these ingredients have had wildly different experiences, but when they come together they create a harmonious meal. People are no different. We all have different families, grew up in different places, have different hobbies. But when we all come together for a shared experience, we are one. So how will you find connection through food? Invite people to your table as often as you can. Share in the experience of cooking and eating together. Because when it comes down to it, we are all just here to eat.
