The traditions of cooking have significantly changed from what it once was in its practice and cultural meaning. A fast paced lifestyle and preference for convenience has led to the commodification of food and redefined meals. In some cases, cooking has become the practice of heating up a pre-prepared meal or purchasing from a nearby store where there is a lack of recognition for what is fresh or where the food originated. For others, accessibility to nutritious options is a challenge. This change in culture and lifestyle choices is major contributor to significant health issues in today's society. With an interest in challenging people to rethink the way they consume, this project looks at the reintroduction of food culture and traditions to engage and help people make healthier choices. City Hearth is a community kitchen where all are welcomed to come learn, pass a plate, and share in a meal at the family table.
