How did persistent attachment to wheat shape Mennonite settlement in Paraguay? What did it mean for Mennonites to rapidly expand the availability and affordability of butter, milk, and cheese in local markets in northern Mexico and eastern Bolivia? Learn how the place of Mennonites in Latin American societies over the past century has been premised on practices of producing, marketing and consuming food.
