Eating Our Feelings Zine

The Atlanta food community is very dear to me. I met some of my most cherished friends while working as a server and food photographer. When Linda McNeil and I came up with the idea for this food zine to help raise money during the pandemic I underestimated the impact we could make. We started out with a modest goal of selling a couple hundred zines and thanks to our pal and fellow contributor, Austin L. Ray, we aimed higher and ended up selling 500 copies. We raised $7k for The Giving Kitchen. It feels really good to be able to give back to this community that I got and still get so much from. We worked with an incredible crew of artists and writers to fill the pages of Eating Our Feelings. There generous creativity left me feeling inspired. I’m very proud of this zine.
