Hungry Planet


Throughout the run of Hungry Planet: What the World Eats (January 28–June 10, 2012) the Burke Museum will host weekly events to encourage discussion on how people incorporate food into their lives and cultures—around the world and in our own backyard. The exhibit features photographs of families from 10 cultures around the world, and is a place to gather and explore the myriad issues surrounding food in the 21st century, from sustainable agriculture to food sovereignty.
