Grocery Shopping – 04

In Spring 2021, Richmond Food Stories collaborated with students from McKay Elementary’s Grade 6/7 classes to create an art work series for “Eating in the Time of COVID-19.” By engaging students to reflect on pandemic experiences through art, each young artist produced a unique illustration in response to the following prompts: How have you celebrated special occasions during COVID-19? What was it like to go grocery shopping when the pandemic first started? How has home cooking and eating changed for your family since the pandemic?

I drew this because ever since Covid has started, it has been harder to find most of the things in this picture, such as masks, toilet paper and hand sanitizer. Because I wasn’t able to find as much of these items as I would have been able to if the pandemic hadn’t happened, it was harder for me to stay safe.
