What Does Food Mean to You?

Whether it's remembering our family gathered around the dinner table, the weirdest meal we ever had, or trips to our favorite food trucks, we love to share stories and pictures about memorable meals and gatherings. 

Now your memories and photos can be part of Our Global Kitchen!  Your photo could be featured in a special interactive exhibit that celebrates the moments in life we mark with food.

Here’s how to contribute:

• Post your photo on Instagram with hashtag #CelebrateFood and include a brief caption.

• Be creative! Feel free to embellish your photo with words about what made the food so special.
