BC Food History Network


BC Food History Network was started about 2012 by three home economists. We research the history of food production and consumption in BC, Canada, and wherever else we find connections to food and history.

We hope you will enjoy this site as much as we have enjoyed our food history research. Be sure to check our Food History Blog for the most up-to-date postings.


Our intent is to share research into the history of food in British Columbia. Our inquiries are wide-ranging and include such topics as early food production, food products, and food practices as well as the social, economic, political and cultural significance of foods produced and consumed in British Columbia.


We regularly add new blogs on aspects of food history.  We operate informally.  Please sign up to receive new blogs as they are posted.  Comments are welcome, as are suggestions for new topics.  We also have a Facebook page.
