Join the Loring Greenough House for a virtual talk about the women who helped to feed Boston-area denizens throughout history


All through Boston’s history, women have had a multifaceted impact on society’s relationship with food. From farming and shellfish gathering by the Massachusett tribe to serving tavern patrons during colonial times to the establishment of restaurants by European immigrants and migrants from the American South, women have taken a prime role in providing sustenance to our communities. Join us for a Loring Greenough House virtual event on Thursday, April 7 at 7 p.m. about the women who helped to feed Boston-area denizens by Mia McMorris, creator of the “Women Feeding Boston Tour.” McMorris will discuss some of the key figures featured on the tour, which is part of the Boston Women’s Heritage Trail.
