Food Literacy

Food Literacy @ Dudley


Are you a foodie? Chef? Baker? Are you a nerd for all things food history, culture, and politics? Or do you just want to explore other cuisines? Join fellow Dudley House members for fun with food. Classes, excursions, pot-lucks, and more. The goal of the Food Literacy Program is to cultivate an understanding of food from the ground up. Education focuses on four integrated areas of food and society: sustainability, nutrition, food preparation and community. 

Join our mailing list to get regular updates on upcoming events and opportunities to collaborate. For questions or ideas about events you'd like to see around food at Dudley, please contact Jessica Carbone at with any comments or suggestions.
