Food in the Workplace with Slow Food South Bay

written by By Britt Bensen with Kim Marinucci Acker, Slow Food South Bay On a beautiful fall...

Slow Food Leaders: Vincent Medina and Louis Trevino

Right now, we have to choose a side that we are honoring. We need to stand up to massive corporations who are homogenizing food and make sure that culture has a voice. Working on a global level with food activists, indigenous or not, relationships develop and we are stronger together.

Slow Food Leaders: Jin-Ya Huang

“It’s not just cooking. We are starting a revolution, and the ladies [from Break Bread Break Borders] who cook are my chosen sisters. In creating job opportunities, we are amplifying voices that don’t usually get heard and celebrating women. They practice English and talk to people from all spaces in life. Their community is not just their physical neighbors. We are building community and celebrating differences too.”

Slow Food Leaders: Taylor Pate

“Our regional, local food system is based on this movement. I think that’s pretty incredible. The ethos of the organization exists beyond the organization itself… Slow Food chapters are the body of what Slow Food USA is doing. People have a keen interest now in understanding their food, especially because of climate change. Food goes well beyond just diet.”

Slow Food Leaders: Aretta Begay

Everyone should be mindful of the history of food. So many American foods stem from wild edible native American foods.
