Kalamazoo Foodways Symposium

The Kalamazoo Foodways Symposium is an annual event that provides historical, cultural, and practical insights into the region's food and food systems, and equally important, serves as a convening point for students, practitioners, and the community to come together to ensure our local food system remains strong and vibrant.

Our Collaborators

The event is made possible in part by a grant from the KVCC Foundation, and a strong collaboration between various departments of Kalamazoo Valley Community College and the Greater Kalamazoo community.

Event History

Each year, the event has a different theme and focus. Celebrating the rich cultural histories of members in the community has brought people closer together and allowed community members to showcase their skills and share special family recipes.
