Food, Aging & Community — What’s Healthy And How Do You Get Your Food?

On February 25, 2023, Psyche Williams-Forson, professor and chair of the University of Maryland’s Department of American Studies, spoke about the role of food and community. Williams-Forson is one of America’s leading thinkers about food and culture, and the author of several books, including Building Houses out of Chicken Legs: Black Women, Food, and Power; Taking Food Public: Redefining Foodways in a Changing World (with Carole Counihan); and her most recent, Eating While Black: Food Shaming and Race in America. She and her students have worked with Meals on Wheels, and she is a member of the Prince George’s County Food Equity Council.

The event was part of the Route 1 Corridor Conversations series organized by Hyattsville Aging in Place, Helping Hands University Park, Neighbors Helping Neighbors College Park, and Explorations on Aging College Park.
