A local offshoot of the local food movement group Slow Food USA invites interested folks to its first meeting, Oct. 1 at the historic South Buffalo pub Gene McCarthy's, 73 Hamburg St., at 8 p.m.
From the release:
"The national focus of Slow Food USA is to spread awareness of the importance of eating locally grown and produced foods. Slow Food Buffalo Niagara will host its first public meeting Oct. 1, 8 pm, at Gene McCarthy's restaurant located in Buffalo's First Ward to discuss the local focus of Slow Food Buffalo Niagara and how it fits into the national Slow Food USA agenda.
SFBN will answer the questions: What is Slow Food; What is the history of Slow Food in the country and region; what is the SFBN focus as a chapter; and how to get involved.
The meeting will be hosted by the SFBN board members and will feature a live Skype-discussion with Slow Food Denver leader Andy Novak who has helped to see that all Denver-area public schools have a school garden."
