Join Missouri Humanities around the table as we consider the role food plays in shaping our society—how it connects us to each other, to our own pasts and identities, to our Midwest roots, and to the world around us.
Together we will host conversations that explore Missouri’s foodways and culinary traditions to celebrate the breadth and depth of Missouri’s cultural heritage, natural environment, history, and the relationship between food and the human experience.
