Food: A Four-Course After Dark Program.

This November, join us for in-depth explorations of food, served with tastings, talks, and demonstrations designed to whet your curiosity about cooking and eating in a rapidly changing world. Programs take place over four Thursday nights, and cover topics ranging from kitchen innovations to food security.

Please Note: The museum will be closed Thursday, November 23 for the Thanksgiving holiday.

What makes you decide whether to eat something or not? Some of us base our choices around who produces a food, how it's produced, or how it looks when we buy it—or retrieve it from the depths of our refrigerators. Some of us simply eat what's available, for better or worse.

According to the Natural Resources Defense Council, America wastes up to 40% of its food, "from farm to fork to landfill." And many communities lack secure access to nutritious food. Learn how food justice advocates are providing equal access to healthy, high-quality, and affordable foods through urban farms and backyard gardens, as well as education on ecology, farming, and public health. Find the beauty in ugly produce, and get tips on keeping a waste-free kitchen.
