Triota’s Inuagural Multicultural Crock Pot Cook Off
Club Fundraising and Social Event
Co-Sponsored by The SAGE Center and PRISM
The goal of this event is to foster a sense of connection with, and kindle meaningful relationships between, the many diverse cultures present on campus galvanized by the similarities we all share when it comes to using food as a wordless language of caring and love. Through the sharing of personally and culturally meaningful foods, and the stories that go along with them, we hope to create dialogues between students, faculty and staff of different cultural heritages that broaden the understanding that although we come from different backgrounds, we all share similar goals of living healthy, happy, loving and meaningful lives, of which can be realized in the way we care for each other using food as a language when words are either not easily found or not an option at all. (As inspired by the WMS 599 online course “Take Back the Kitchen”)
