As part of the fabLES Public Art project produced by FABnyc, Feed Me a Story created a billboard consisting of food stories gathered in part from their work at the LaGuardia Senior Center, shared with the public through an interactive video installation. Order #6 Diana’s Macaroni with Meatballs & Sausage here.

The foods are clearly ethnically distinct, and reflect a portrait of the Lower East Side. Going to the website one can find the recipes for each dish displayed, as well as a video of it being prepared by its cook. The cooks, who the artists worked with at the LES’s LaGuardia Senior Center, share stories of their families and heritages as they make their dishes.
