One of the most important parts of social work is building meaningful relationships, but if your most valued acquaintance is the person who delivers your carryout, then it's time for a culinary reassessment! Food for Thought is the BSW and MSW student's guide to preparing tasty and healthy food while still having time for family, friends, and-of course-studying. With weekly recipes submitted by more than fifty social work educators and planned out over the course of
two 9-month academic years, you can be sure this cookbook will fit into your life.
Good food, well prepared, can foster health, strengthen families, make friends, build communities, and bring diverse cultures together. With humor not normally found in a typical cookbook, Kevin Corcoran makes the case for food's rightful place in your social work education and career. Don't let a lack of time and resources discourage you; you have to eat, so you may as well enjoy yourself!
