Foodways Traditions Video- Northwest Ohio

Like many places, Northwest Ohio has rich foodways traditions that are oftentimes overlooked. The Center for Food and Culture here identifies seven traditions, discusses their past and present uses and meanings, and ties them to local northwest Ohio culture.



For each tradition, we include a short (5-6 minute) documentary video, a printable 1-page information sheet, a printable 1-page activity sheet, and additional resources (bibliographies, reports, etc.). The videos can be watched through the website, and on completion of the project, will be available for purchase. They can be used in the classroom, but also are for the general community. Hopefully, they will stimulate discussion and stir interest in looking more at one's own foodways traditions.

Partial funding for the project came from the Ohio Humanities Council, CFAC, and Schooner Farms in Weston, OH.  The Wood County Historical Society and Museum was our partnering fiscal agent. The Project ran from May to November of 2012, with a public opening at the Wood County Historical Museum.
