The Best Home-Cooked Meals From Grandmas Around the World
Day 39: You're part of a multigenerational movement! At any stage of our lives, we have a lot to learn from other generations. Today, we're inviting your family to explore the importance of multigenerational connections. Check out this video about five different families from around the world and the recipes that Grandmas love to share with their grandkids.

People of all ages have important views, skills, and passions to share with the world. It's important for us to foster relationships with people of all ages. From toddlers to grandparents, we have a lot to learn, and a lot to share with people who are older and younger than us!
Let's Talk
After watching the video, The Best Home-cooked Meals From Grandmas, use the questions below to kick-start a great conversation with your family:

  • What stood out to you about the families in this video? What made you smile?

  • In the video, many of the grandmas talk about how food brings family together. What activity do you do with your family that brings you together now?

  • What's your favorite meal to cook with your family? Ask a grandparent, cousin or aunt/uncle to share their favorite recipe with you.

  • Bonus! Cook with your extended family near and far. Set up a video call and share a recipe that you can all make while hanging out virtually.

Do Something
Capture Your Family Story
Share your family's experience with the Chicago History Museum.  To capture the journeys of Chicagoans during these uncertain times, the Chicago History Museum has started the  In This Together  initiative. In This Together is a community based initiative to collect digital public records that document personal experiences during the COVID19 pandemic. Share your story with other Chicagoans to document this important time in history.

Your family's experience can help teach generations in the future.  Capturing the stories of families is an important part of documenting history. The museum is collecting journal entries, audio/visual recordings, pictures, emails and more. To share your story, go to the  In This Together submission page  for tips on documenting your family's experience.
