Arkansas Foodways Initiative

The food we eat, how we prepare it, and who we share our food with is our history. Through this history we can learn more about ourselves as Arkansans, as well as who we were hundreds of years ago. We can begin to trace our heritage through our foodways and discover how to the foods we eat came to be on our plates. Using foodways to explore our past is immediately relatable and provides an entry point to learning more about the many cultures that make us who we are today.

The Arkansas Foodways Initiative allows the museum to delve deeper into Arkansas foodways and provide even more programming around our food heritage. The History is Served dinner series, debuting in 2018, is the first of such programming-made possible through the support of our History is Served sponsor, Ben E. Keith Foodservice Distributors.

Your donation to The Arkansas Foodways Initiative will allow the museum to delve deeper into Arkansas foodways and expand programming around our food heritage.
