A message from our Board
Dear Slow Food Urban San Diego Supporter,
As you enter into this season of giving thanks and enjoying food, please consider supporting Slow Food Urban San Diego in our efforts to teach the children of our community about good, clean and fair food for all. We need your help to continue our programming in schools and in the community focusing on instilling in our children the slow food values:
“Good” – enjoying the pleasures of healthy and delicious food
“Clean” – gardening for sustainability
“Fair” – producing food that respects economic and social justice
Your support will enable us to continue our programming in schools and at local events including the Slow Food School Gardens and Edible San Diego for Kids. The Slow Food School Garden Curriculum provides lessons for taste education and basic cooking skills. The activities center around cooking and eating with the goal for students to customize and enjoy what they have grown. The lessons promote critical thinking and involve hands on actions by the students.
We believe in the power of this work to build our community and empower the next generation to continue the mission of good, clean and fair food for all. As Alice Waters has said,
“Edible education reaches and nourishes children deeply. It recognizes their worth and their power. It connects them to each other and to nature. It teaches them one of the fundamental values of democracy: that we are all dependent upon one another.”
Your donation will help us to do this work by enabling us to purchase some of the following items for our programming:
Our goal is to raise $5000 to fund tabling kits for taste education and a new printing of Edible San Diego for Kids.
