Event description
For Meat's Sake

About this Event

For nearly a century, Gainers of Edmonton provided Western Canadian kitchens with ham, sausage, lard, and other food products. The company disappeared in the 1990s after a period of restructuring, labour unrest, and changing economic conditions in the province’s meat packing industry. Although few physical traces of the company remain, archival research using newspapers, photographs, and government records can help us rediscover the company and the community it created. While on site for this presentation, take in our latest gallery photo exhibit Food and Community. A donation to Edmonton's Food Bank is welcome.
