The Smithsonian Food History Gala from Home
kicks off the 2020 Food History Weekend focusing on Food Futures: Striving for Justice
. The Gala from Home
features the sixth annual and first public presentation of the Julia Child Award to Danielle Nierenberg, Co-Founder and President, Food Tank by the Julia Child Foundation for Gastronomy and the Culinary Arts. We will be joined by many special guests from around the globe.
The Gala from Home is free to attend.
However, we rely on contributions to support this and other ongoing work of the Smithsonian American Food History Project at the National Museum of American History, including important new initiatives, which will help us to:
Please consider donating.
- Establish a paid internship program to provide mentoring and professional learning experiences to candidates from communities that are underrepresented in the museum and food history fields. Internships are an important way to build inclusive museums in the future.
- Make Smithsonian food history resources more widely accessible to all. Your support will help us create and sustain a more robust digital presence with our food history collections, research, and programs, including the popular Cooking Up History conversations and demonstrations that feature guest chefs and cooks from around the country.
