Combatting Loneliness Through Food
Loneliness can have a profound impact on mental health, and it's a challenge many of us face. Through our session, we'll explore how food can be a powerful tool for combatting loneliness. Whether it's through the act of preparing a meal for yourself or sharing a nourishing dish with others, food can be a catalyst for connection and a source of comfort during times of solitude.
