Slow Food USA believes that everyone on our planet has the right to clean, fair, good food. They advocate for fair, clean farming policies and fair treatment of farm workers. Some of their activities include:
Slow Food USA has an excellent blog where they explore many aspects of food and food production. You can read about rooftop gardening, biodynamics, gardens in Africa, and a host of other topics. Highly recommended reading. There are also local chapters, SlowFood DC, SlowFood Baltimore, and SlowFood Delmarva. Visit their websites to learn how you can get involved in this movement.
That's Food for Thought this Friday.
