Eating and drinking have always been an indispensable part of human life. Both contribute to physical as well as mental well-being and are a source of identity and culture. Beyond the mere intake of food, eating and drinking together can connect, support, comfort and create community and exchange in everyday life as well as in times of crisis and prosperity.

The exhibition “Of potatoes, cabbage and pubs” is a contribution of the Kaarst City Archives to the nationwide Archives Day 2024, which takes place under the common theme of eating and drinking. The exhibition offers a small, colorful insight into the Kaarst City Archives' collection on this topic.
