We’re pleased to announce that we’re partnering with UA Museum of the North and the Downtown Association to bring a free exhibit to UAF’s Community and Technical College this fall. Key Ingredients: America by Food was produced by the Smithsonian Institution as part of the Museum on Main Street initiative. It is touring the state thanks to a grant from the Alaska Humanities Forum. While in Fairbanks, the exhibit will feature local photos, recipes, stories and more.
Key Ingredients dovetails beautifully with Co-op Market’s emphasis on good, healthy, sustainable and local food. As Co-op owners and shoppers, you know and care more about the foods you eat than the average person. We’d like to tap into that knowledge and help build the story of food in Fairbanks. Do you have family recipes that use local ingredients? Do you have a special way with caribou or salmon or blueberries? Do you grow your own food, or wild harvest it, or hunt and fish for it? Please share your stories, recipes and photos with us! You’ll be adding key Fairbanks ingredients to the Smithsonian’s exhibit.
