About Slow Food School Projects

August 6, 2012 in Slow Food Schools

Since its inception the East End chapter has been dedicated to initiating and funding local “Jr. Slow Food” projects. We are inspired by chef, author and edible school-yard visionary Alice Waters, who thinks “If Americans would choose seasonal food grown through sustainable techniques by local farmers, if we would serve caring meals at the family table rather than scarfing Happy Meals in the minivan, we would restore family values, transform our communities and stabilize the environment. We would also enjoy ourselves more.”
