About this exhibit
We created this digital exhibit to explore the history of food and learn how it has shaped the growth of Minnesota. Although growing, processing, and consuming food has changed greatly, it remains an integral and interconnected part of our society. After exploring this topic, we hope you are as amazed as we are by the richness and variety of food in Minnesota and its impact on our lives.
The Minnesota Digital Library (MDL) is grateful to our many contributors for sharing the primary and secondary sources highlighted in this exhibit. This exhibit would not be possible without their willingness to collect these materials and make them available to all.
