Journal Entry #4: The Power of Food in Our Lives

After watching the “Caring for Your Garden and the Power of Food in Our Lives” video (2 minutes) in the Read/Watch section of this module, answer the following questions for Journal Entry #4.

In the video, Bobby talks about the power of food in our lives – that people associate food with their lives. He names how this is embedded into the larger conversation about social justice and food justice, which isn’t only about access to food, but also include those foods that may be associated with a cultural preference.

  • How could you learn about food needs and desires in your community?
  • What are some ways of telling stories related to food that touch the hearts of people involved in Seed to Supper and illuminate the power of food in our lives?
  • How does your community view the food that they both need and want?
