Slow Food Buffalo Niagara is a chapter now! Our official launch will take place at 8PM on October 1st by kicking off a monthly lecture series. This series will take place every 1st Monday at Gene McCarthy’s Pub in South Buffalo.
The topic of the lecture is “What is Slow Food?” We will briefly review the history of Slow Food here and around the world. Following this we will discuss our choice to focus on building school gardens and on furthering the cause of Edible Education in Buffalo Niagara. This comes at an auspicious time as Slow Food USA just created a new national school garden program aimed at fostering the growth of school gardens in cities around the United States.
Joining us via Skype from Denver will be our speaker Andy Nowak, who will tell us about Slow Food Denver’s Seed to Table program. Andy is the project director of Seed to Table as well as the director for Slow Food USA’s new national program.
Join us for our official chapter launch on October 1st and learn about the exciting work that Andy and Slow Food Denver’s Seed-To-Table School Food Program has done to create meaningful relationships between young people and food in order to transform the school food system.
