Haverford Library

Learn more about the history of shoe-box lunches and how the tradition endures today with local chefs Ashbell McElveen and Chris Paul. For over a century, shoe-box lunches have provided African Americans with portable sustenance and safety during cross-country road trips, especially in the era of segregation. Participants will make their own shoe-box lunch and discuss the significance of this time-honored strategy in shaping current approaches to food and social justice. This program is presented by the Free Library of Philadelphia’s Culinary Literacy Center. For more information please visit freelibrary.org/cook.
