WE ARE OUR MOTHERS
WE ARE OUR MOTHER'S
As a child raised in the murder capital of the world, I learned the systemic and economic challenges I experienced were not the result of the inadequacies nor faults of my parents or caregivers in my community but was a condition of the places in which my family and families like mine were deposited.
Thus, a theory of care became the impetus for my work—care for students, children, and eradicating the systemic challenges they experience with food by creating local gardens.
Therefore, by implementing acts of care when teaching and working with students and their families on growing, preparing, cooking and sharing stories over food, the expectation is that, together, we will alter trajectories regarding healthy eating that will be incorporated into our everyday lives.
