In this piece I've taken the words of food justice warrior Cesar Chavez:

"If you really want to make a friend, go to someone's house and eat with them... the people who give you their food give you their heart"

 

Growing up in an Italian house, food is close to very my heart! Cesar's words ring so true to me. Its exciting to partner with Beacon Natural Market which celebrates healthy food, healthy living and nourishing our community.

 

Word Alchemy: a seemingly magical process of transformation. The rules of spacing, punctuation and direction are abandoned in order to explore what new meanings might emerge as the words by inspiring social justice heroes, artists and thinkers are written in different formations.
