Cultivating Food Justice with Julian Agyeman talk at MAPC

Foodways are manifestations and symbols of cultural histories and proclivities. As individuals participate in culturally defined ways of eating, they perform their own identities. Autotopographies allow new immigrants to retain their identities through food ways and food systems in a new country.

The Philippines is one of the least known countries in Asia, compared to China or Japan. My country also deals with poverty so we must make the most of the littlest things. We fix both of these problems with food. Filipinos make themselves known through their cultural food. Our foods are often made with colorful ingredients and spices. People often ask what it is then get addicted to its taste.

We are also creative with our foods. Rice, which is a large part of our diet, is the main ingredient of many entrees and desserts. There are many desserts of all colors made of rice. This is how food shows our culture.
