Our Global Kitchen: Food, Nature, Culture

This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.

Add to Calendar 17-11-2012 30-08-2013 15 Our Global Kitchen: Food, Nature, Culture Food is the one thing that unites every culture, race, and generation: over one billion people work in agriculture and every person eats. Food is used as a social ritual, a holiday tradition, a symbol of comfort, a gift, and an excuse to catch up with friends. The curators of this exhibition hope it will encourage visitors (both grown ups and kids) to examine a thing we all do everyday -- eat! -- and think about everything that goes into that act more consciously. The exhibition touches on a lot of serious issues such as the scarcity of food predicted for the future, alternatives to avoid that shortage, and childhood obesity. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2014neweventinfo.cfm?id=123440 American Museum of Natural History true DD/MM/YYYY
