Guided Tour: Food and Mending in Central Square
Join History Cambridge on Saturday, Oct. 23, for a new guided tour, "Food and Mending in Central Square." As a source of both physical and emotional sustenance, food is intricately tied to survival for individuals and the community. During the twentieth century, food also played an important role as a means by which Cantabrigians could learn about and connect with their neighbors across racial, ethnic and class lines. Graduate students from the Boston University Gastronomy Program will lead a tour of Central Square, highlighting locations and moments in Cambridge history in which the sharing of a diverse array of ethnic cuisines helped to raise awareness and understanding of the area's rich cultural mosaic. Details will be shared with registered participants.
This tour was created in conjunction with History Cambridge's upcoming event, "How Has Food Mended Cambridge?," which will take place on Monday, Nov. 15, at 7 p.m. via Zoom.
