You may have seen many tweets and Facebook posts about Kwanzaa Culinarians. For those celebrating, Kwanzaa began on December 26th, and it will end on the first day of the New Year. Kwanzaa Culinarians’ is comprised of a group of food bloggers, authors, chefs and business owners who are shedding light on the principles of the holiday and how they relate to community at large. Of course, for us, food finds itself at the root of many of the principles. For every day of Kwanzaa, you can read four different bloggers’ views on and experiences with the principle. Today, you can check out the meaning of Ujima, or collective work and responsibility. No doubt you are very much aware of the ways in which collective work and responsibility helps to bring awareness and change, and that has never been more evident than in the food world. Check out a Massaged Kale Salad recipe, and find out how Ujima has made itself known in one neighborhood of Los Angeles with the Social Justice Learning Institute.
