Food Writing Competition 2021 -- Preview

CREATIVE NONFICTION — Sources of Sustenance.

Covid-19 has unleashed changes on nearly every part of society, including the world of food. More people are cooking at home, growing their own food, and finding creative solutions to cupboards full of canned goods. Meanwhile, the pandemic has gutted the restaurant industry, put workers in meat processing plants and migrant farmers at higher risk, and made everyone everywhere realize that where our food comes from and how it is processed and delivered is not to be taken for granted. More than ever, we are aware that food links us to our families, our culture, our environment, our bodies… and to tradition, ritual, and celebration. This month, write an essay about food and so much more. We hungrily await your entry.
