Governor's Report

  

  

 
The focus in September was on the membership drive - and lots of you joined or renewed. 
THANK YOU!

Our chapter came in narrowly behind New York City and Portland - third place. With a few more renewals and new members we should be a shoo-in to have incoming Board of Directors President Matt Jones fly in from Denver to cook dinner for the board. Haven't joined yet? There is still time for the Farm 2 Fork Capital to show it supports good, clean, fair food for all. Join Now. Thank you for supporting Slow Food!

Speaking of Farm 2 Fork, you may have read that during Farm to Fork week,  the Governor signed legislation supported by the Slow Food California Policy Committee. Read more --  

Finally, we were delighted to host Slow Food Executive Director Richard McCarthy and Managing Director Kate Krauss for a meeting of Central Valley Chapter Leaders at Hot Italian on Oct. 7. Paolo di Croce sent a special message of appreciation from Italy for all the great Slow Food activities in the region.
