1 p.m. -Program: Everybody Eats: The St. Louis Jewish Food & Foodways Project (presented by Diane Everman, phD, Archivist, St. Louis Jewish Community Archives)
The St. Louis Jewish Food & Foodways Project is gathering information about those who owned, operated, or even visited various Jewish-owned food-related businesses. From the early 19th century through the late 20th century, there were hundreds of Jewish businesses that revolved around food, including delis, bakeries, butchers, fruit & produce vendors, grocery stores, poultry and egg men, confectioners, fish markets, and supermarkets. This presentation will offer a glimpse into our findings to date.
