Terra Madre Americas

May 17 - May 19

On May 17-19, 2024, at Memorial Auditorium, Slow Food International is hosting Terra Madre Americas, its inaugural event to allow for a dialog between different worlds (those of food producers, scientists, cooks, researchers and, above all, people) who will meet in Sacramento and make the event an unmissable occasion for participation, connection and discussion.

Terra Madre Americas will explore how food is interrelated with most aspects of our lives and environment, with specific focuses on the climate crisis, social justice and education in the food and beverage system through the lens of specific topics.  

SLOW FOOD LEADER GATHERING

Connect with other Slow Food leaders and exchange ideas and strategies for strengthening local connections to activists and food producers. Meet Slow Food President Edward Mukiibi and hear more about how local chapters can deepen their investment in the global Slow Food movement.
