Food. At its core, it is a source of life. A necessity. We cannot survive without it.
But food is much more. Food feeds the soul. It is a reflection of our culture and who we are. It is an integral part of our histories, our traditions, our celebrations.
For refugees and immigrants feeling their way in a new country, food becomes even more important. It is a precious link to the past. A way to feel at home in a place that is not home.
This multimedia project, produced by University of Nebraska-Lincoln students in the College of Journalism and Mass Communications Mosaic course, examines the importance of food in the lives of new Americans in Nebraska.
