Soul Food Sampling
The St. Luke and Odd Fellows Hall in Historic New Town will offer a Soul Food Sampling and presentation on the history of Soul Food. Soul Food is a uniquely American cuisine that has evolved from the time enslaved people arrived until the present day. The creativity and thoughtfulness that enslaved African Americans applied to collecting, preparing, and consuming food is a testament to the loving care that sustained them for generations.
The Soul Food Sampling will include a brief overview of the history and traditions of soul food, the recollections of residents of the former New Town neighborhood where the St. Luke and Odd Fellows Hall is located, and of course generous portions of traditional soul foods.
There are 3 time slots for the event:
11:00 AM - 1:00 PM
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
3:00 PM - 5:00 PM
