FOOD

Between gathering ingredients, prepping meals, starting a fire, doing dishes, and actually cooking, dealing with food compromises a significant part of my day. In order to share with you what a typical volunteer might eat, I’ve collected all of the food pictures I’ve taken over the past year. They’re unflattering, unfiltered and a good portrait of reality. Enjoy!
