Home Cooking & Restaurants – 01

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?

“This connects because when the pandemic started, people started doing a lot of things they have never done before. This picture is my first time making a turkey and we had to go shopping to buy things. My twin and I did most of the work and we had a fun time eating the turkey.”
