In "Cherokee Seed Bank", the person in the portrait, Kevin, talks about how the Cherokee culture is being kept by going back to their roots and getting their cultural foods from planting. In Education for Socially Engaged Art by Pablo Helguera, the topic of audience came up and for my topic of recipes and family traditions passed down, the audience can be for people that cook or for people that have traditions that hold a special meaning or memory to them.
A student at the University of Minnesota, Ben, talks about his own family traditions regarding pies. Milton Rosa talks about a family tradition passed down from his grandfather to his father of a recipe.
Karyssa Jackson talks her memory of greens during family gatherings. Laverne Henderson talks about her recipe for greens. She first learned how to cook while watching her mom cook.
Family tradition is important for the identity of that family and creating memories that will be passed down. Family tradition is a way to keep the past cultural ideas present.

- The Second Art of Food Community meal. The meal was a family style dinner that focused on guests sharing connections among food, culture, family and tradition around tables.
- The main objective of the event: People and organizations came together to explore ways their organizations and communities could creatively cultivate a stronger community food system. And finding ways to provide fresh vegetables and fresh greens for the community.
This video talks about the partners involved in the community meal and a short dance that shows the power food has in a family.

A group from the climate change crew were also there to get some feedbacks and talk to the community about the app they created which tracks healthy food access in Frogtown.
I was first struck by Vivian Mims at the Greens cook-off when, toward the end of a video of her demonstrating how to cook a batch of greens, she said to not throw the juice away, but to instead use it in a concoction involving hot sauce that can “clear you out better than Smooth Move tea.” https://youtu.be/BQY41FPlYCM?t=2m21s
Also at the cook-off, Samuel talks about how having Diabetes has effected what he eats, how he has become healthier, and gives some generally good advice for when trying to eat healthy. https://youtu.be/C6k9lgkkW_c?t=1m40s
In The Color of Food, Valerie Segrest mentions the health benefits of berries, including being high in Vitamin C and balancing blood sugar, which is also anti-diabetic. Valerie goes on to talk about how important tradition is to establishing a working food economy, and how a community’s health can be impacted when their means of producing their own food are limited
