Meet Slow Food SMC

Membership Recruitment Event

Slow Food SMC far surpassed expectations for its first campus recruitment event on May 12th. In conjunction with a campus social hour, students Ian Sharp and Lorena Sanchez set up a booth to spread the Slow Food philosophy and promote the chapter.

The extensive roster of students that signed up at the booth
will accompany the additional documents required by Slow Food USA to formalize the campus chapter.

Beyond providing information, students were treated to apples, Dixon strawberries, Knoll Farms green garlic, Bellwether Carmody cheese, Cowgirl Creamery Mt. Tam cheese, and table crackers.

From the supportive and enthusiastic responses of the students that visited the booth, the Slow Food SMC chapter will have much opportunity for future growth and collaboration.

Fair Food: Field to Table

Fair Food: Field to Table is a multi-media project created by the California Institute for Rural Studies. Right now, there is a need to raise funds to reproduce DVDs of this fantastic project. CIRS has been giving copies away at no charge to whoever requests one but they are running out. Slow Food on Campus is using these DVDs in their Fair Food on Campus campaign. Help out by pledging a minimum of $15 to this great cause. It will advance the fair aspect of Slow Food USA's mission and will help a local California non-profit.
