The aims of the museum are to fundamentally change peoples’ lives by helping you consider what they eat, where it comes from, how it gets to your table… and what happens when it’s inside your body.
We want to spread knowledge around nutrition, health and the social and cultural importance of food.
Above all, we want to celebrate the glories of food, in all its forms.
In time, we hope the British Museum of Food becomes a globally recognised cultural icon, with a growing archive that becomes a national resource, as a platform for experimentation and innovation, and a body that can advise government policy makers on anything related to food.
The future of the British Musem of Food will depend on the support of benefactors big and small.
We are seeking a permanent site with a full-time curator, and will be collaborating with government and the private sector to establish the museum as the latest addition to the capital's cultural landscape.
If you'd like to help we will be accepting donations at 1 Cathedral Street.
We are currently looking for volunteersto work on the British Museum of Food.
