Southeast SlowFood Lovin'

Greetings slow foodies! In alliance with our Slow Food USA family, we want to share with you some events happening down here in the Southeast worth checking out.

July 31st:
Slow Food Upstate, SC - Roost! Birds of a Feather Break Bread Together
In an effort to support local farms and school gardens, the Upstate folks are gathering at Roost Restaurant to enjoy a honey-tasting bar and themed dinner. A real "birds and the bees" meeting we may say.

Aug 3rd:
Slow Food Atlanta, GASave Your Seeds & Share
Down in Georgia, the Slow Food community in Atlanta are hosting a free event in the Oakhurst Garden to learn how to share seeds and food tradition.

Aug 25th:
Slow Food Charlotte, NC - Heck No, GMO Cookoff
Nine local Charlotte chefs are finalists in this recipe cook-off contest! All attendees are able to sample - that is spreading the love right there!

And as always, we'd love to hear from you and any event ideas you may have for our Columbia chapter! Shoot 'em our way.

If you are not yet a member with us, come on and join. We're always looking for more folks to spread the joy of good, clean and fair food.
