Greater Midwest Foodways Alliance

Highland Park, IL

The Greater Midwest Foodways Alliance is dedicated to celebrating, exploring and preserving unique food traditions and their cultural contexts in the American Midwest. By hosting public events, developing archival resources and generating publications, the GMFA uncovers the distinctiveness of a region that is as varied in tastes and traditions as it is in its geography from the Great Lakes to the Great Plains. Whether indigenous foods like Wisconsin cranberries and Minnesota walleye, iconographic flavors like the wheat and corn from across the prairies, immigrant cuisines from early Europeans to 21st-century newcomers, or fish boils and fine dining in small towns and big cities, the GMFA promotes and chronicles the diversity of the regions culinary character.


I have no upcoming events.
