We compiled and created a simple cookbook for folks during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our focus was to translate complex food justice concepts into something that was easily understandable and accessible to a wider audience.

It all started in March 2020 when Christina started posting quarantine-friendly recipes on her Instagram︎︎︎ for friends using ingredients that had a long shelf life. Because of all the uncertainty at the start of the pandemic, we wanted to limit our trips to the grocery store, but still make sure that we were eating healthy and well-rounded meals.

A nested circle diagram with the header 'Our Relationship with Food'. The largest and outer circle is SYSTEM: Politics, Environment, Economy. Second circle is OTHERS: Story-telling, Connection, Tradition, Love. Third and smallest circle is SELF: Physical health, mental health, and identity.

The 40-page cookbook includes recipes and local food resources to get folks started on their journey learning about food justice. It’s available as a free download on itch.io︎︎︎, and thanks to our generous supporters we were able to raise almost $800 to donate to local grassroots organizations!
