Food & Drink History Resources @Virginia Tech (and Beyond): Local Foods/Local Food History

Special Collections in the University Libraries can help with your food & drink history research, including books, manuscript collections, ephemera & digital items. This LibGuide also includes resources you can find at other institutions.

An Introductory Note

"Local" can mean something different for everyone. For us, in this particular case, we are using "local" to mean the town of Blacksburg and Montgomery County, Virginia, as well as several nearby counties including: Botetourt, Bland, Craig, Floyd, Franklin, Giles, Pulaski, Roanoke, and Wythe. 

Also,  check out the "Virginia Tech Food History & Virginia Cooperative Extension" section.
