Eating in the time of COVID: ditch the canned ravioli for fresh, local food

By Christine Sismondo, InsideOttawaValley, April 21, 2020 Eating nutritious food can be a challenge at the best of times. Now, between lineups outside stores, items missing from our pickup orders and advice that we only shop for groceries every other week to improve social distancing, it’s tempting to chuck it all and live on canned ravioli and instant noodles. Especially if you’re an essential worker and/or struggling with home-schooling responsibilities on top of it all.

Still, it’s impossible not to rethink our relationship with food right now, given that “convenience food” is a concept that belongs to the before times. So, for those of us who have the luxury of a little extra time and the physical space to cook, maybe now we should consider changing our long-term relationship to food — both in terms of what we do with it and how we get it.
