I've been a member of Slow Food and also followed the growth of the movement for many years. To clarify, slow food is not just the alternative to fast food; it's an international organisation supports regional food production, encouraging people to eat clean and sustainable. It's a grassroots movement that focuses on the enjoyment of food while being committed to the community and environment.
Tonight, Slow Food Dublin's is turning the spotlight on food waste. We're gathering community for dinner & hosting speakers at the Dublin Co-Op on Newmarket Square, Dublin 8.
The goal is to raise awareness of food waste in our own homes and communities and ways in which we can all help. Plus hopefully raise some funds for various campaigns.
