Home Cooking & Restaurants – 02

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?

“My art connects with how I experienced the pandemic because everything I wrote is based on my own experiences and things I have learned. All of my writing and drawings show a part of how I experienced meals and cooking with the pandemic. I wrote my experiences in different sections with a few drawings related to what I wrote next to them.”
