Buy Local. Buy Fresh!
Slow Food aims to build networks of producers with co-producers within the convivia as well as connect the convivia with the community to all work together for one common goal. This goal is to “build relationships with producers, campaign to protect traditional foods, organize tastings and seminars, encourage chefs to use local foods, choose producers to participate in international events and promote taste education in schools.”
Slow Food will not only honor farming traditions and practices, but also create and open up a network of fisherman, foragers, bee keepers, ranchers, nutritionists, bread & cheese makers, teachers, chefs as well as any local merchant who wants to get involved in the local sustainability movement. The more diverse our organization is, the more people we will attract, thus the more lives we will be able to impact.
Eating is an agricultural act and informed, discriminating consumers become co-producers. For them, food should be Good, Clean and Fair.
