Jan 11, 2010
Hear Richard Villadoniga, director for the local chapter of the Slow Food Movement.
Slow Food First Coast is a non-profit organization that promotes local food production, the preservation of our communitys culinary and cultural heritage, and public education and discourse on a system of food production and consumption that supports equity, sustainability, and quality.
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.
The organization has developed a number of local CSAs, supports food equity programs, and has declared 2010 the Year of the Young Eater to educate children and parents on the benefits of eating foods grown in a sustainable manner.
