|Title||Cookies in the mailbox [electronic resource] : stories of Como community told through food /|
|Abstract||This qualitative study seeks to understand the shared experiences of members of Zion Missionary Baptist church in Como community. Como is a predominantly Black community nestled among wealthier, predominantly White communities around it. This research uses narrative methodology to analyze the stories of five members through the use of foodways theory. The analysis looks beyond the literal meaning of food and investigates the ways in which food represent themes about community in Como. While stories may be about a meal, they actually illuminate larger ideas of education, traditions, history, economics, and ministry and the way these categories define Como and permeate its community.|
