Taste education plays a major role in Slow Food Upstate's Education for Children.
See how we do it on this video.
Slow Food in the Classroom
Meet Daniel Parson's as he talks about farming to children...
By understanding where our food comes from, how it was produced and by whom, adults and children can learn how to combine pleasure and responsibility in daily choices and appreciate the cultural and social importance of food. Our education projects differ from most food education as they are based on the idea that food means pleasure, culture and conviviality.
Special thanks to euphoria Greenville, Food and Wine event and the LBDG Charity as well as donations from the Don and Zelma Waggoner Foundation for supporting Slow Food Upstate Children's programs.

Connecting young people with their food is the most important step we can take to ensure a future full of good, clean, and fair food. Slow Food nurtures this future through our Slow Food in Schools program. Working with our chapters across the country, our Garden to Table projects provide meaningful, hands-on food experiences and education to K-12 students.
Current projects for children are incorporated on the CFSA Farm Tour in June, the Earth Market, all summer sessions, and other special dates annouced on our calendar.
