A portion of proceeds will benefit Slow Food St. Louis. If you haven’t heard of Slow Food than you need to look them up! They hold events all over the place showcasing local and sustainable food practices. Here is a blurb of information from their site:
Slow Food is a non-profit, eco-gastronomic member-supported organization that was founded in 1989 to counteract fast food and fast life, the disappearance of local food traditions and people’s dwindling interest in the food they eat where it comes from, how it tastes, and how our food choices affect the rest of the world. Slow Food is good, clean, and fair food. We believe that the food we eat should taste good, that it should be produced in a clean way that does not harm the environment, animal welfare, or our health, and that food producers should receive fair compensation for their work. We consider ourselves co-producers, not consumers, because by being informed about how our food is produced and actively supporting those who produce it, we become a part of and a partner in the production process. The Slow Food St. Louis convivium is a lively group. We actively work to support the Slow Food philosophy and mission in and around the St. Louis area. Please check out our events page for information on educational and social events happening around our area. We invite you to attend any of our events. Get to know us. Consider becoming a member.
Wow! This was a lot of information in a short amount of time! We hope to see you all out at the farm event. There are a limited number of tickets we have to offer so don’t hesitate to reserve yours! Here are some links for the event:
