Food is a topic that is relevant to every person. In this Technical Leaflet, Sandra Oliver discusses the rise in scholarship of the burgeoning field of food history.

She discusses how to create sophisticated programs and exhibits about food ways and provides examples of ways to integrate food history into programming.

Her tips for research and how to use collections for interpretation of food and the customs associated with it are helpful for any organization looking to incorporate food history into its narrative and programming.

Practical concerns are also discussed, such as staff training and daily operations of food programs.
