About THE MUSEUM OF FOOD AND DRINK

Location:

PO BOX 380857, BROOKLYN, NY 11238, US

Mission Statement

MOFAD takes you on a learning adventure through food with exhibits you can taste, touch, and smell. We advance public understanding of food’s central importance, and we use food as a shared language to inspire curiosity about each other and the world. We pursue our mission by producing multi-sensory exhibitions and programming, preserving and interpreting history, and serving as an academic resource for students and scholars. Our goal is to open the world’s first large-scale, independent food museum.

Description

MOFAD, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, aspires to become the global leader for food education: visitors will learn about the culture, history, science, production, and commerce of food and drink through exhibits and programs that emphasize sensory engagement. When visitors come to MOFAD, they won't just see and touch - they will smell and taste as well.

The time is right for an educational institution that enables people of all ages and backgrounds to make better, more informed choices for themselves, their communities, and the environment. This will be a museum for everyone: food is culture, and the Museum of Food and Drink will show why.
