Food for Thought’s Final Stop: Evansville!

After two years of traveling around the Hoosier state, the Food for Thought exhibit will make its last stop of the adventure in Evansville. The exhibit will be visiting the Central Branch of the Evansville-Vanderburgh Public Library from Sept. 10 to Oct. 2, with other events taking place at various branch locations.

Stop by the exhibit to learn about Indiana’s unique and growing food culture. In addition to the exhibit, Evansville is offering a variety of classes and activities, ranging from a session about apples to a program on local foods. During the month, visitors can learn how to cook, and even how to make smart, cheap, and healthy grocery decisions!

Remember, this is the exhibit’s very last stop, so this is your final chance to check it out before it finds its permanent home! Get pumped about Evansville’s programming by watching this video.
