From the dawn of human history, communities have come together in times grief to cook, share, and eat. Whether it’s a sacred ritual for a holy feast, or a casserole gifted to a neighbor after a funeral, food is an important thread in the tapestry of mourning. Join us as we reflect on this more-than-year-long period of illness and death arising from the COVID-19 pandemic, and ways that planting, harvesting, eating, and sharing food has helped—and can help—us navigate loss together.
