Feeding Cleveland is a portal to a dynamic set of digital collections that explore the vast local food history of the Cleveland and Northeast Ohio. As important as Cleveland's diverse ethnic heritage, its cultural footprint, or its industrial development, an understanding of this city is not complete until we take a look at how Clevelanders have brought food to their tables over the years.
Cleveland's local food history is laden with pleasant sensations: sweet smells emanating from the Log Cabin Sugar Camp in Burton; the welcome of a cool breeze while working in the school garden; the taste of a long, cold draft of a P.O.C.; the sights and sounds of the West Side Market, to name a few. These experiences are all imprinted in Cleveland's collective memory, and are revisited here in Feeding Cleveland. Dig in!
