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.

For our Food and the Environment month, join us for a screening of Agnes Varda's 2000 documentary, The Gleaners and I, a romantic and thoughtful elegy to scavenging and repurposing everything from agricultural surplus to trash to oysters to art, and as much a loving portrait of Varda the filmmaker as it is of the gleaners she documents. Join us for popcorn and this fizzy, wonderful film! (Run time: 82 minutes.)
