Reprinted from CFANS e-Newsletter, Issue 37, Oct. 19, 2009
: The grocery lists and dining tables of people around the globe -- like the family from China pictured above -- are the subject of a new exhibit at the Bell Museum of Natural History
that's based on the national best selling book. Hungry Planet, which runs through May 9, combines mesmerizing photos with hands-on displays that explore issues of food in the 21st century — what people eat and where it comes from, as well as how different cultures approach the growing and processing of food. The exhibit is accompanied by a wide variety of food-related programming during its entire run at the Bell.
