So Today we thought it would be good to tell you our faithful readers and friends about a movement that we are not only a member of but a movement and cause we believe in, Slow Food Barbados.
What is Slow Food you ask?
Slow Food is a global, grassroots organization with supporters in 150 countries around the world who are linking the pleasure of good food with a commitment to their community and the environment. Slow Food believes that everyone has a fundamental right to the pleasure of good food and consequently the responsibility to protect the heritage of biodiversity, culture and knowledge that make this pleasure possible.
A non-profit member-supported association, Slow Food was founded in 1989 to counter the rise of fast food and fast life, the disappearance of local food traditions and people’s dwindling interest in the food they eat, where it comes from, how it tastes and how our food choices affect the rest of the world.
Today, they have over 100,000 members joined in 1,500 convivia – our local chapters – worldwide, as well as a network of 2,000 food communities who practice small-scale and sustainable production of quality foods.
Now Slow Food comes to Barbados to help bring good food back to our society that so desperately needs it. Headed by Ian McNeel, Slow Food Barbados is working closely with The Organic Farmers Association of Barbados headed by John Hunte, they aim to bring good food back to a place where it is accessible to any and every bajan that wants it.
With 1 successful Slow Food Farm to Table Event down & another one due in August, this isn’t a fad, this is a movement!!
