Slow Food in Schools
E-mail Print

Slow Food in Schools supports local projects as they create meaningful relationships between young people and food. By placing an emphasis on hands-on experiences, community interaction, and the pleasures of the table, Slow Food in Schools projects help to strengthen the food communities of tomorrow by engaging youth today.

Each Slow Food in Schools project works closely with a local chapter to teach students where their food comes from, who grows it, how to prepare it, and the importance of sharing it with friends and family. Slow Food in Schools projects are designed to address the specific needs of the communities they serve. Using good, clean, and fair food as the guide, project leaders develop creative, fun, hands-on lessons.
