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 preference for the following items: tuna, peanut butter, breakfast cereal, canned meats (turkey/chicken/ham), and canned pasta.
This project is presented in partnership with the Master of Museums Studies (MMSt) at the Faculty of Information at the University of Toronto. The exhibit has been curated by MMSt graduate candidates Romina Campanella, Hannah Berney and Dahlia Bishop-Cotner.
