Twenty people came to the meet the board on July 24th! We had people who are farmers, cooks, teachers, food producers, entrepreneurs, young and not-so-young, and of course, all lovers of food! Everyone had lots to say and there was a real excitement about engaging a new, active Slow Food chapter in Rochester. We all talked about how we came to care about food and what we would like to see happen with Slow Food Rochester. We talked about many possible different activities, including farm tours, book and film potlucks, guest speakers, cooking classes, farm mobs, and food activism! September in Locavore month and we are planning to have a month-long series of local dinners hosted by various people. More details will follow soon.
