Taking Candy from Strangers

We’re taught as kids to distrust the stranger, to be skeptical of help that comes from the unknown, and of help that comes without expectation of return.  We begin to assume that if someone helps us, then they must want something back. And yet on this trip, I’ve learned to trust in the stranger and […]

Building a Fresh Start

Thirty minutes outside of Madison, a hard working crew is building a new Dane County park.

I’ve lived in a castle like mansion, a basement apartment, a cooperative duplex, a hobby farm. I’ve lived in different parts of the […]

Do you speaka my language?

By Emily Torgrimson I am fluent in Food. For me, food has become almost a native language – I speak it, I think it, I dream it. And of course, I eat it. I am, however, not yet so comfortable with the two new languages I’ve been learning this year. Hables Legalese? Sprechen Sie Construction? […]

Trailer as Metaphor for Life

This trailer is a metaphor for many things. This trailer is a tool. Through this process of rebuilding the trailer, we’re building relationships. One weekend, a total stranger volunteered to work on the trailer. Brian had been to just one Eat for Equity, and although he hated to cook, he loved to work with his […]
