what the world eats

Hungry Planet: What the World Eats

For all those Seattleites that like to eat, this exhibit at the Burke explores where our food comes from, and what we as a culture put in our mouths. Hungry Planet: What the World Eats introduces families from 10 countries around the world – and through photographs chronicles where and how they eat, what they buy at the market, and what a week’s worth of groceries look like. It’s quite interesting to think about how society and nature affects the world’s eating habits, and how food connects us to one another.

The topic is given a local bent in the Salish Bounty: Traditional Native American Foods of Puget Sound exhibit which explores 5,000 years of tribal diets of those living around Puget Sound.

The museum has partnered with PCC also to present weekly food tastings and special food talks.
