The study of food is much more than just that, food. It’s a relationship of our long history of humans and how food shapes our experiences with our own culture and other cultures. It’s how we connect with each other. Food studies itself is a multidisciplinary study of food as a whole like the science of cooking and understanding to make and grow food in a more effective way. The author talks about how the school cafeteria is complex for ethnic minorities because it creates a space to assimilate food pressures and peer relationships collide because it has kids negotiate their home and school cultural divide. Food is built into our biological system because it can tell stories of our human migration, assimilation, and our identity as a whole.
