A La Rhody – Rhode Island’s rich culinary history


Leaders from local educational, cultural and tourism organizations have joined together to encourage like-minded groups to participate in a year-long program aimed at exploring Rhode Island’s rich heritage through its culinary history. The initiative, called A La Rhody, will include programs and special events with a food focus.

Organizing partners include Providence Public Library, Rhode Island Historical Society, Providence Department of Art, Culture & Tourism, Discover Newport, Providence Warwick Convention & Visitors Bureau, and the Rhode Island Commerce Corporation. The group worked for nearly one year to develop a slate of lectures, exhibits and events with a culinary theme, as a well as a branded marketing presence. A formal launch will take place in early January, in conjunction with Providence Restaurant Week.

The group held a community event at the Aldrich House to introduce the program to other community partners and is asking those interested in participating to visit the website alarhody.org to get more information and/or submit an event for inclusion. The project’s goal is to spark a statewide conversation and shared experiences around the role of food in Rhode Island lives and communities.
