FOOD AND IDENTITY “We Are What We Eat”
What is the real meaning of the phrase "we are what we eat?" Who is the "we" in this statement, what is eaten, and how was this food made?
Join us for a Global Food Tour at the Penn Museum, a 60-minute tour followed by a 30-minute hands-on interactive activity that incites all the senses and attempts to answer these questions.
The tour will highlight objects from across Museum galleries and explore food and food production, economics, religion and spirituality, class, gender, and community. Learning about food culture helps us understand our identities in the past, present, and future. Join us to discover how!
