On being an origin forager
We at Capture Your Story are huge fans of the food writer Mark Bittman's, and the way that he relates food to larger issues like the environment, social justice, and health.
In a recent interview that Mark did with fellow food writer and activist Stephen Satterfield, Stephen said something that really resonated with us and felt like it was describing the work that we do - not with food, but with people and their stories.
"I've given myself the silly moniker of ‘origin forager,’ and what that means is we see value – immense value – in recovering, pursuing, a place of origin. Because the place of origin is necessary to know and understand as a means of celebrating, as a means of building empathy, as a means of being able to move forward. "
