What’s for Dinner? Exploring Locally Sourced Meals in Southern Ontario: Exhibition
April 27 – 12:00 pm – July 30 – 4:00 pm
Visit the Bradley Museum from April 27 to July 30 to explore the exhibition topic of how local foods invoke nostalgia, represent the past and present, and bring people together.
Discover the many ways food is grown, shared, and eaten in the City of Mississauga. Hear stories from community members, learn about seasonal crops, and discover the diversity of dishes enjoyed by local residents. Food is more than sustenance – it fosters community, reflects identity, and represents the land and people it comes from.
On-site activities for all ages will be available including ‘Guess the crop’ flip-up panels, plush planting games, and a recipe card community board.
The exhibition includes free entry, however, there is an opportunity to give back to the community in the form of non-perishable food donations. The Compass Food Bank will have a collection bin on-site, with a preference for the following items: tuna, peanut butter, breakfast cereal, canned meats (turkey/chicken/ham), and canned pasta.
