Food as Community hosted by Nadia "MCNadzzz" Chandra from Vibe105!
Hear why Nadia wanted to host food as community:
"This event says that food is a conduit that can provoke memories and connections to our loved ones and this is spot on! After losing my Mother to Cancer in late June 2022, I feel like every meal she ever taught me connects me to her more and more. Everyday she is gone has not been easy, but the connection to her Guyanese traditions, sayings and teachings, especially when it comes to food, brings me comfort knowing that she will live on through me for this reason. This was why I said yes to hosting the first episode of Food as Community. I also LOVE connecting with the community and I feel like the stars must have aligned when the opportunity presented itself to me shortly after I lost my Mom. Sometimes divine timing has a way of working itself out when dealing with grief and loss. :)"
