General Program, Ponte Vedra: Slow Food
Apr 5, 2010
Hear Richard Villadoniga, Director of Slow Food First Coast, a non-profit organization that promotes local food production, and the preservation of our communitys culinary and cultural heritage. It also promotes public education and discourse on a system of food production and consumption, which 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. It links the pleasure of food with a commitment to community and the environment. The organization 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.
Everyone is welcome! Snacks will be provided, but bring your own drink.
