Students learned about the global food production system at the new exhibit called “FOOD: Our Global Kitchen.” The exhibit explores the complex and intricate food system that brings food from the farm to the table. The tour encompasses the entire process from growing, transporting, cooking, eating, tasting and celebrating this key life essential. The exhibition further illuminates how the world eats and explores the future of food.
The museum offered the students an opportunity to taste seasonal treats in the working kitchen, cook a virtual meal, see rare artifacts and peek into the dining rooms of famous figures throughout history. Visitors also examined the intersection of food, nature, culture, health, traditions and history.
