Decatur: Made in the Mitten
October 17 @ 6:30 pm
Dianna Stampfler presents, “Made in the Mitten: Michigan’s Rich Foodie & Agricultural History.” The Great Lakes State is often referred to as the “Mitten of Plenty.” Add to that a growing industry focused on locally-sourced products such as cheese, poultry, sauces, jams, breads, chocolates and SO much more, and you have a feast just waiting to be devoured. Michigan is also home to many significant food manufacturers that have helped shape Michigan’s culture. This program will not only introduce audiences to Michigan’s rich foodie and agricultural history, but will allow everyone to sample a few Michigan-made products as well! Free and open to the public.
The program complements the Smithsonian Exhibit: Crossroads Change in Rural America and is made possible in part by a grant from Michigan Humanities, an affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
