AWI Voices With Impact presents: Comfort Food
Growing up with food that doesn’t conform to Western norms can be a cause of shame and embarrassment for immigrants and their children. At the same time, family recipes and traditional foods are a way for us to connect to our heritage, feelings of home, and cultural communities. There is power in knowing that our ancestors drew strength from these same nourishing dishes – as a way to come together, to feed their loved ones and to survive. Filmmakers Emilie Cheung, Rosie Pidcock, and Thea Loo discuss food, wellness, heritage, and identity in this session.
