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.
