Slow Food Sacramento is off to Slow Food Nations-- in force! 

A delegation of ten Slow Food Sacramento members is traveling to Denver for Slow Food Nations July 14-16. 

Three of our board members will be presenting on workshops and panels focused on food justice: Chanowk Yisrael (Aligning the Food Justice and Good Food Movements), Brenda Ruiz (Federal Food and Farm Policy), and Ed Roehr (Fair Food Field to Fork). 

Chanowk and Judith Yisrael are making the drive with some Project GOOD participants and they will be filming from door to door. 

Charity Kenyon chairs the working group bringing food justice to the core of Slow Food Nations programming, organizing three panels, two workshops, and a dinner. 

Lisa Frank, Slow Food USA Governor for the Central Valley, is working with Slow Food California to organize a double booth featuring Slow Food chapters across the state and California growers and processors dedicated to protecting and promoting Ark of Taste foods threatened by the fast food juggernaut. 

We're looking forward to a fantastic meeting and to bringing it all back to Sacramento in an upcoming Quarterly Community Meeting. Denver, here we come!

We're also excited to announce that the folks at New Helvetia will be joining us to pull some of their great local beers!

There will be mead and hard cider (from the farm), beer on tap, a farm fresh ice tea to help wash everything down, the Delta breeze to help cool everyone down, and a local musician to help everyone get down - Join us in celebrating the summer palate as we raise funds for Local Lunchroom! 

*Guests are encouraged to bring their own wine - suggested corking fees ($10 for local bottles, $20 beyond the Valley) will go straight to Local Lunchroom.
