Annual Members Meeting

This year's Slow Food Delta Diablo annual member's meeting was once again held at Knoll Farms in Brentwood.  As Josh put it on our group's Facebook page "If ya weren't at the members meeting Sunday, you missed out!!! Wood oven pizzas, good company and lots of exciting plans for the year ahead!"

Time For Lunch

We discussed last year's highs and lows including our most successful events: the Pork on Your Fork event at Ennes Ranch and our Slow Food Time For Lunch Eat-In.

Gail informed us that our third annual film screening at Los Medanos was attended by 60 students and featured the movies Fresh! and Homegrown.

and then fired them up in the Knoll's wood-burning oven.
