Slow Food USA has completed a strategic planning process and landed on the organization's national role of inspiring change to summarize how it will organize national activities and priorities. It will direct energy and resources to the three ways Slow Food is best suited to achieve the goal of inspiring change: through Gatherings, Campaigns, and Strategic Partnerships.
What else does this mean for local chapters like ours? The grassroots network remains the strength of Slow Food and source of most important ideas and work. Chapters will continue to lead from the roots, but Slow Food USA is determined to remove some of the bureaucracy from our plates.
Finally, look for the new Slow Food California newsletter coming to your inbox soon. You will learn more about activities organized on a statewide basis, including Ark of Taste and food policy.
