12017-03-16T20:15:03-07:00Young Adults Learning Skills Around Preparing Food (or not)5Katie Jerome's first video project about young people (high school and college aged) and them learning or not learning how to cook and what they want to see in their food infrastructure.plain2017-03-18T14:02:37-07:00Welcome class and community members,
The inspiration for my project came from growing up cooking with my family and my family expecting me to make lunches for myself and learn how to cook some things at a young age and which inspired a passion for learning more about where food comes from and learning how to cook non-essentials. Additionally, thought out college I've engaged on issues of food justice, community gardens, and worked at a food coop in the twin cities for almost the last 5 years. I care about young people such as myself and my friends as well as the broader community knowing how to cook for ourselves and not always relying on convenience food. But I also know the pushes and pressures in our society for young people to continue to do more and more through internships, classes, and extra curriculars. there may not be extra time or emphasis on learning how to cook for oneself. I see this as a problem especially on college campuses- while I come from a position of privilege on this issue as a college student, I also see that if I was able to learn how to cook and understand food that others can as well.
(want to put pictures of myself gardening here... can't figure out how)
Enjoy! Feel free to engage with comments, questions or your experiences. Thanks!
Here, a college student talks about she ordered a CSA (community supported agriculture) share last summer and didn't know some of the vegetables that were in it and talks about a good way for her to learn and know more would be creating an infrastructure of community meals where she can learn the skills needed and learn more about vegetables she doesn't know about.
Here, two Bethel students talk similarly about how they know how to cook one or two things but want to know more- the infrastructure around food- that they know of at their campus really isn't there and they also want to have community meals where they would learn skills and be in community with others interested in food.
Here Imani talks about how to make kale chips and other easy healthy foods. This is to say that the young people interviewed are not all doom and gloom when it comes to preparing and knowing about food and healthy food options.
All these clips come from the Storymobile interviews off of the Frogtown page.

One of the problems mentioned in the videos is finding ways to have a cooking night and have people make different foods at a certain location. Another problem mentioned was what kind of jobs would they or people in the community like to have.
The girl in this video mentions some problems that can also relate to different communities around the world. Having opportunities like a Community Meal can help bring people together and realize the similarities and differences in there culture and lifestyles.
I can relate to the two girls in the video because they talk about having a cooking night because I feel like this would be a good way to get more people to have a background in cooking. People can also learn more about different ways to make food as well. I really like how this Imani really explains the farms are a good source to get food but they are also pricy. This is good to mention so that when the people organizing the farms are making improvements for the next couple of years they can probably look and incorporate the amount of money people have to spend.
Eating around a table means both eating and talking, if only to say a few words of praise for what is presented to us. At the table we talk about what we’ve eaten before and what we’re going to eat and everything in between. If we say nothing at the table, then there is always the refusal of food as the final word.
I thought that this was an interesting quote because when you eat together whether it is with family, friends or strangers there is always a story or something to learn about other people at that moment.
Solution: The solution that they had was to reach out to people who are locals and go to the type of programs that they have in Frogtown and Rondo to help them find things that they can change to get more people interested and taking all the opportunities that can really help them as a community.
