Our Table of Memories: Food & Poetry of Spirit, Homeland & Tradition


Our Table of Memories: Food & Poetry of Spirit, Homeland & Tradition


Our Table of Memories invites readers to consider the spicy, delicious connections between food, poetry and stories. The food-themed poetry and recipes are part of an exciting first-time collaboration between Project Feast and the Stories of Arrival: Youth Voices Poetry Project, edited and directed by Merna Ann Hecht. Both serve to help refugees and immigrants share their strengths and experiences, and by doing so, literally and metaphorically nourish the larger community. 

An ideal resource for teachers, writers, food advocates, counselors and others who support young people and cross-cultural understandings.     

"Stories of Arrival and Project Feast are motivated by something more than themselves—by tradition and a creative spark, by the abundant earth and the ineluctable human heart."

—John Fox, Founder, The Institute for Poetic Medicine    

“I believe that food is the blood and soul of our ancestors and that making food is an art.”      

—Project Poet, from Mexico

“When we began the project, we were students, but now we are poets.”

—Project Poet, from Burma
