Celebrating Juneteenth with Farmer Chippy in Baltimore

Slow Food Baltimore’s second event of the year celebrating Juneteenth was held on June 18. They partnered with Farmer Chippy’s Plantation Park Heights Urban Farm, a black-owned urban farm in Baltimore. … The event was attended by over a hundred people, mostly from the Park Heights neighborhood, but folks from St. Vincent’s church and other Slow Food Baltimore friends also came out as well. It was a wildly terrific event!

A food bank garden and community garden help alleviate food access issues in Lake Tahoe

The SFLT Food Bank Garden has grown exponentially each year; in 2021, they were able to feed over 75 locals each week with 388 pounds of culturally appropriate food for a predominantly Latinx recipient base, with the help of over 850+ volunteer hours. The garden also recently gained a full-time garden manager, which has been crucial to the current success of the garden. To fund these operations, SFLT has hosted several fundraisers, auctions, and applied for various local grants through community foundations.
