The New American Servitude

Eating together and sharing food is often taken as a sign of community—as in rituals of communion, and it was often a site of conflict. This coda explores care workers’ and patients’ reflections on eating and food—from the smells of “African cooking,” to the joys of patients accepting African foods and kosher dietary restrictions—as meditations on belonging and incorporation by patients and care workers alike.
