As a space of belonging for geographically, culturally and socially diverse constituencies, we explore the inclusive culture of food and how it transcends conventional systems of power. Breaking Bread is an opportunity to consider our coexistence through food, find shared connections and practices and hold spaces within them to thrive. 

This program is made possible by the Remsen Bird Fund and the Arts and Urban Experience Initiative, which is generously funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

Parking information and more can be found on our Visitor Info page.
