PCC is partnering with the Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture to present “Hungry Planet: What the World Eats.” Hungry Planet examines how people from different countries and cultures feed their families, through photographs of 10 families from around the world at home, at the market, and surrounded by a week’s worth of groceries. The exhibit also features “Salish Bounty: Traditional Native American Foods of Puget Sound,” which explores 5,000 years of traditional tribal diets, as well as the revitalization of native food traditions.

Each month there will be cooking demos, nutrition talks or PCC Healthy Kids events with PCC staff. See below for upcoming events.
