We Could Not Do It Without You

It is hard to believe an entirely volunteer-run and supported organization accomplishes all of this and so much more. Even if you cannot donate at this time, we want to THANK YOU SO MUCHfor supporting Slow Food NYC in 2013 and hope to see you at one of our events in the New Year!SFNYC Initiatives Include:

  • Urban Harvest Gardens: A seed-to-plate, healthy eating educational garden program in East New York reaching 150 kids annually as well as the wider community.
  • Slow U Fellowship: Select high school students take part in food and farming opportunities to help produce a new generation of food-active individuals who will help to change for the better the way our nation and, indeed, the world is fed.
  • Slow U Events: Talking, teaching and tasting our way through the good, clean, and fair food revolution that is helping us reclaim the food chain.
