When: Saturday, October 23 at 2:00 pm
Where: Central Square (details will be shared with registered participants)
Please join us for a guided tour of Food and Mending in Central Square!
As a source of both physical and emotional sustenance, food is intricately tied to our survival as individuals and as a community. During the twentieth century, food also played an important role as a means by which Cambridge visitors and residents could learn about and connect with their neighbors across racial, ethnic and class lines.
Graduate students from the Boston University Gastronomy Program will lead us in a tour of Central Square, highlighting locations and moments in Cambridge history in which the sharing of a diverse array of ethnic cuisines helped to raise awareness and understanding of the area’s rich cultural mosaic.
This tour was created in conjunction with our upcoming Fall Conversation, How Has Food Mended Cambridge?, which will take place on Monday, November 15, at 7:00 p.m. via Zoom.
This tour is made possible through grant funding from the Cambridge Heritage Trust.
