Food for Thought Traveling Exhibit: Bloomington

Indiana Humanities’ Food For Thought traveling exhibit continues its adventure across the state when it makes a stop at Bloomington’s City Hall May 6 – 20. The Center on Aging and Community and the Bloomington Food Policy Council will partner to host the exhibit.

Stop by the exhibit to learn about Hoosier food through the engaging displays, and take part in engaging programs to discover how Bloomington has contributed to Indiana’s food culture.

On May 6, there will be a Senior Expo story tent at the Twin Lakes Sports and Recreation Center, where you can share your own fun, touching or ridiculous food stories with each other. Also on this day, check out showings of food-related videos from Food Flix, an intergenerational filmmaking initiative.

On May 7 and 14, head to the Food For Thought exhibit and pop by the Farmers Market as well.
Also on May 7, anthropologist Anya Peterson Royce will discuss the history and culture of chocolate. Did I mention there will be free samples? (this would make a great early Mother’s Day present!)

On May 16, Food For Thought is bringing a heart-healthy menu of songs and poems all about food, presented by Voces Novae and the Writers Guild, to City Hall.

May 28 is the date for the Intergenerational Picnic, held at Lake Lemon.

Also on the schedule is a discussion about African-American food traditions in Indiana. Stay tuned for details!

Indiana’s Family of Farmers is the presenting sponsor of Food for Thought, a two-year Indiana Humanities initiative that encourages Hoosiers to think, read and talk about food.
