Hi, we're Feet in 2 Worlds -- a journalism project at The New School in New York City that brings the work of immigrant journalists from communities across the U.S. to public radio and the web.

Earlier this fall, we hosted a multimedia journalism workshop focused on food stories from immigrant communities. The participants – a diverse group of journalists and food professionals - visited immigrant-owned food businesses to find out what home tastes like for people who make a living feeding hungry New Yorkers.

Now we're asking you to share your own story about food in your family -- using audio, photos, and text.

-Do you have a beloved family recipe for Thanksgiving, Diwali, Hanukkah, Christmas, Eid, Spring Festival, Nowruz, or other special occasions? Take a photo of the dish and attach the recipe. Be sure to tell us why it's special to you + when you make it.

-Is there a dish your grandmother (or another family member) made -- but the recipe was lost when she passed away? Tell us about it. What did it taste like, when did she make it, why do you love it? (Be sure to attach a photo of your grandmother!)

-Food can make living in a new land with unfamiliar customs tolerable for immigrants. Food is also one of the most enduring points of connection for Americans who have lost touch with their immigrant ancestors. Tell us how your family uses food to keep these connections alive. Be sure to include photos + recipes.

-Are you an immigrant? Tell us about the first time you celebrated Thanksgiving, how you learned to cook with new American foods (turkey!), and how you managed to find ingredients from home in U.S. grocery stores.

Food is culture, food is family, food is tradition. Please share your family food stories with us.
