bring us food on a daily basis.
To achieve these goals Slow Food works towards 4 program areas:
Focus on family farming vs industrialized and corporate farms. Corporate farms generally produce only one crop which lowers the quality of the soil.
- Children & Food
School Gardens – we have a bunch of those in DC (woot woot)
Gatherings with fellow Slow Foodies (aka parties with awesome food)
- Food Communities.
Getting the message across through events, film screenings, etc.
Slow Food awards restaurants, producers, markets and farms a “Snail of Approval” to those who contribute good, clear and fair food to the community. Check out the restaurants below that are Snail Approved in DC:
- 2 Amys Neapolitan Pizza
