“Slow Food aims to be everything fast food is not.”
What is Slow Food?
Slow Food is an idea, a way of living and a way of eating. It is a global, grassroots movement with thousands of members around the world that links the pleasure of food with a commitment to community and the environment.
Interested in getting involved in the Slow Food movement? For many of us who have been transitioning to local and organic, grass-fed and hormone-free, from scratch and with our children’s health in mind, Slow Food seems like the natural next step.
Slow Food Brandywine Valley is a newly formed chapter of the Slow Food movement, and they are holding a Meet-the-Board potluck tomorrow, Tuesday June 29th, from 6:00-8:00pm at Coverdale Farm. I met some members during the Summer Festival at the Newark Co-op a few weekends ago and they were super-nice, enthusiastic folks, who gave me some awesome recipes to try out.
This is the first real event for Slow Food Brandywine Valley, and FREE and open to the public. Bring a homemade, preferably seasonal dish; families are welcome! It’s a great opportunity to find out about SFBV’s mission, share recipes, ask questions, and meet other local peeps who care about real, vital food. And, there will be an opportunity to sign up for a SFUSA membership.
If you’re not familiar with Coverdale Farm, here’s a link to their webpage; click on directions. I would print them out, my GPS always kaputs in that area.
(This post is geared toward local peeps in New Castle County and thereabouts, but the rest of the country can find a local chapter on the Slow Food USA webpage.)
