Give What You Can Day

September 15, 2017

Now is a great time to join or renew your membership in Slow Food!  

Or… mark your calendar for Friday Sept 15thand pay what you can.

This grass roots organization supports a local, regional, national and international network whose goal is no less than to change the way the world eats. Our international campaign focuses on the relationships between what we eat and how we grow it in a time of climate change.
Membership dues make possible the national and international work of Slow Food, especially in the global south. Our local investment in Slow Food’s 10,000 school gardens in Africa projects- including those we’re rebuilding after devastating floods in Sierra Leone- the farmers in Mexico cultivating and preserving ancient corn varieties- the small producers in Bulgaria preserving not just cheeses, but a way of life- the farmers in Indonesia cultivating some 500 varieties of rice according to a 5 day calendar, who have never experienced crop failure- and on and on in some 150 countries.
Ark of Taste is another major initiative. This is an online catalog of foods disappearing and foods worthy of our attention.
