We do a lot of eating here at Georgia Organics HQ, and whenever we can we try to do it sitting at a table together. So we were pumped to hear about Slow Food Atlanta’s Slow Food at the Table campaign:
From Saturday, February 1, through Monday, March 31, the “Slow Food at the Table” campaign symbolizes a collective call to action encouraging the act of planning any kind of meal with your friends, family and neighbors. There are no restrictions to the type of meal planned, but participants are encouraged to include seasonal menu items or products from local producers in the meal. Slow Food Atlanta will be posting several meal theme ideas and inspirational recipes on their website throughout the campaign. “Slow Food at the Table” hosts will receive a “Slow Food Lives Here” yard sign to showcase in the yard, on a window or front door that can be proudly displayed year round.
After meals are enjoyed, hosts will fill out an online form that will enter them to win the grand prize featuring two seats at an intimate cooking demonstration and private dinner hosted by chefs Steven Satterfield and Asha Gomez at Third Space in Atlanta’s Old Fourth Ward neighborhood. The form and photos from each event will need to be submitted to Slow Food Atlanta no later than Friday, April 4, in order to be eligible to participate in the drawing. The winner will be chosen at random and will be announced in mid-April.
Yesterday we had a slow food lunch with Elena Stein from the Coalition of Immokalee Workers, and here’s the photographic evidence!
