The museum seeks to both preserve and interpret the broad culinary and hospitality heritage addressed by the university. It is a showcase for the work of students, faculty, alumni and distinguished visiting chefs. Through exhibitions and special events, the museum strives to interpret the evolution of food preparation and presentation, the development of culinary equipment and technology, the diverse menus offered and the places where people dine. Since its founding in 1989, the museum has acquired several substantial donations and individual gifts which are in need of varying degrees of additional documentation and conservation. Starting in 2013, JWU conducted a comprehensive inventory of the holdings, a collection estimated to be more than 250,000 items.
