Join the Campaign for Good Food Education

Dear Slow Food NYC Supporters ,

Here at Slow Food NYC, we offer a variety of programs to allow people to experience what we mean by Good, Clean, and Fair Food for All. Through Slow U we offer annual and other special fun and educational events, like Duck Off! An all local duck cook-off, and the SFNYC Food Almanac, our annual food and farm policy review. Snail of Approval provides a chance for restauranteurs, food and beverage artisans, markets, and caterers   to also get involved and align their values with Slow Food's. 

Ultimately, all of the time and energy put into these events goes to fuel Urban Harvest, including our program of  hands-on experience at our educational urban farm that provides young people in East New York a bit of time getting their hands dirty and learning about the joy of food directly from farm to plate. Our tuition free program operates through the summer months, allowing students to participate in summer programs and taste the bounty of food grown in their very own neighborhood. 

Ujima is at the very heart of SFNYC, but it takes many hands and quite a bit of time and money to prep the land and programming for excited young students in the summer. With the help of our farmers and an education and outreach team, we'll be starting our 8th year of good food education at Ujima this summer. We hope to continue this program many years into the future, but we can't do it without the support of all of you. In order to continue the work that we've done through Urban Harvest, we ask that you donate any dollar amount to our Good Food Education in East New York campaign.

Please click the link to find out more about our program at Ujima and check out the video to see just how impactful the farm is to the students that take part. Thank you for your generosity and dedication to the cause. ‎

Slowly,
