Best website award revealed

The BC Food History Network website was the recipient of British Columbia Historical Federation’s (BCHF) Best Website Award on May 27, 2017.

Mary-Leah de Zwart, Linda Peterat, and Mary Gale Smith whisked away the $250 award with their innovative, well-designed, and accessible website said BCHF.

“I like that they have resources for teachers as well as the history of non-diminat cultural groups’ foods, such as ooligan,” one of the judges stated.

The yearly award endowed by David Mattison honours individual or group efforts in creating a well-rounded website pertaining to B.C. history.
