Dri: A 31-year-old is an urban planner with a degree in environmental studies. At the time we first met, she lived in a rapidly gentrifying area of the city’s Central District neighborhood. She’s animated and articulate, which she attributes to battling for attention as one of seven kids. Her large family purchased most food in bulk, including boxed products deemed simple enough for her and siblings to prepare since her father’s erratic work schedule led to a lot of “fend-for-yourself” nights. “When my mom did cook, if she went crazy, she’d use Lawry’s seasoning salt. She didn’t believe in garlic. I recall eating a lot of taco salad as a kid.”
