Multigrain, Multi-gen.

May 29, 2023

I grew up in a household where we revered multigrain bread for its digestive benefits. In that same spirit of variety, a growing number of us seem to be appreciating multi-gen households for their collaborative benefits.

According to a recent Pew Research Center report, the number of multigenerational households has quadrupled in the U.S. in the last five decades, with about 60 million U.S. adults now living with adults from a different generation.

I’ve heard from many MEA alums how much they appreciate breaking bread (maybe multigrain) with their younger roommates. This is particularly true of People of Color, where about one-quarter of BIPOC adults live in multi-gen households compared to only half that many in Caucasian households.

It is heartening to discover that when we take down our age-apartheid barriers, life can be like a multi-gen potluck, with each of us bringing to the table what we know or do best.
