It’s easy to get overwhelmed, especially these days. Inboxes have been flooded with emails offering support, assistance, and advice on navigating these unprecedented times. But shortly after the vast majority of the WPI campus went remote, an email from Rame Hanna, Director of Diversity and Inclusive Excellence, arrived in inboxes with an unexpected and beautifully simple idea: a WPI cookbook.
“This is a very heavy time,” Hanna says. “Much of our communication has been very serious, but it’s also important to remember the necessity of self-care and community, especially in times of self-isolation. Food is such a great way to share culture with others, and giving people the chance to connect through food despite distance is something we think is very powerful.”
