Fresh Fridays

As an extension of Serve & Project, students from MCG's summer program, Daniel, Nick and Cole, joined S&P participant, Shayla, to interview shoppers and sellers at the North Side Farmer's Market. Along the way we got some tasty samples, had some great conversations, and ran into a former MCG student dressed up like an onion.

What are you going to buy?

What are you going to do with the food you bought?
Do you come here every week?

Student interviews

Before the workshop started, six of the students took audio recorders home with them and recorded their friends and family about their eating habits, then edited the audio into short clips. The topics include knowing where your food comes from, memories associated with certain foods, foods eaten at special occasions, the sensation of sushi, the definition of "bitter," college cafeterias and their relation to eating disorders, and others. Here they are - give a listen.
