Slow Food (the topic of Chapter 4 of our current read, Sandor Ellix Katz’s The Revolution will not be Microwaved: Inside America’s Underground Food Movements) is a movement that started out in Italy in the late 1980’s and has spread worldwide. Not only the antithesis of fast food, the slow food movement “advocates for food and farming policy that is good for the public, good for the planet, and good for farmers and workers.”
The closest chapter is Slow Food NYC, although there are a few around the garden state. Interested in learning more? Check out their website, where they have some interesting events and programs going on, by clicking here.
