One of the most meaningful endeavors that Slow Food undertakes is the biennial organization of Terra Madre and Salone del Gusto in Turin, Italy, to celebrate diverse food cultures from around the world. Terra Madre is a thought-provoking political gathering where nearly 250,000 farmers, fishers, producers, cooks, Slow Food members, leaders, and supporters convene for workshops, conferences, and to share their important work around increasing access to and production of good, clean, and fair food.
240 leaders in the food movement will represent the U.S. delegation. Won’t you celebrate Slow Food’s 25th anniversary as a global food movement by applying today? The deadline is March 23 and is open to anyone 18 years and older. You don’t need to be a culinary or food advocacy superstar, you just need to be committed to Slow Food values at the local, national, or international level.
