Celebrating Slow Food in September!!

We’re planning an exciting month of events as a way of celebrating Slow Food in September. On Friday September 2nd, we will be hosting a First Friday event with Joe Bean Coffee Roasters - art, slow food and great coffee! In addition, we’re planning a series of slow food potlucks throughout the month. Please contact right away if you might be interested in hosting a potluck. These can be small or large, just a few of your friends or open to all. Its a chance for everyone to meet other Slow Food enthusiasts in the area and build friendships and community. We have put together a local food finder to help you plan your meals.

And on September 24th, we will be hosting a fall farm dinner at HoneyHill Farm -- complete with farm, tours, great food and a big bonfire!

First meeting of the new Slow Food Rochester!


First meeting of New Slow Food Rochester

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. For more information, check our past events blog.

If you missed the meeting and would like to be involved, please fill out the questionnaire that we had at the meeting!
