We envision a community in which food is the bridge between history, cultures, and individual stories

EDUCATION

Learning is a Communal Activity

We learn best through interactions, sharing information across different backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives

COMMUNITY

Food is a Connector

Everybody has a relationship with food. Neighborhood block parties, excitement over a new restaurant, and meeting up at a local coffee shop, sharing food builds local communities and has the power to connect us cross-culturally

MULTISENSORY

Experiences Engage All Senses

Food engages all our senses, designing and activating memories and opinions. From disgust to delight, the best way to learn about  food is through hands-on experiences with taste, smell, sound, sight, and touch
