‘Food for Health’ on display at Langley Centennial Museum

“Food for Health,” a bilingual travelling exhibit created by the Canada Agriculture Museum, has arrived at Langley Centennial Museum.

“Food for Health,” a bilingual travelling exhibit created by the Canada Agriculture Museum, has arrived at Langley Centennial Museum, in collaboration with the Canadian Institutes of Health Research and other exhibition partners.

Food for Health, which opened on Jan. 15 and will remain on display until March, addresses concerns and questions that many Canadian consumers have about the safety of their food supply, and the role food plays in ensuring good health.

By combining hands-on interactive components, multimedia technology, historical artifacts and graphics, the exhibition showcases Canadian initiatives designed to ensure that our food is as safe as possible.

Food for Health provides Canadians with the knowledge they need to protect themselves against food-borne illnesses through safe food-handling practices.  It will also investigate evidence of links between diet, physical activity and obesity, and illnesses such as diabetes, heart disease and cancer.

In collaboration with this new exhibit, the museum is hosting the launch of Langley Meals on Wheels’ book, Reminiscences, Recipes & Remedies: Langley Seniors Reminisce About Their Food Heritage on Saturday, Feb. 25 at 2 p.m.

“We’re really excited about the new exhibit, and the opportunity it’s given us to collaborate with Langley Meals on Wheels in promoting their book,” said arts and culture programmer Liette Forestell.
