“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.”
Everyone should be mindful of the history of food. So many American foods stem from wild edible native American foods.
The message is to slow down. Gather around the bread making or the smell of sautéing onion. Let that capture your attention, get involved. It is innate within you already.
“Food sovereignty is reconnecting to and celebrating one’s roots and ancestry and not needing to ask permission to feed yourself, your family and your community foods that are culturally appropriate.”
