2016 Slow Food Socials
Tuesday, February 16th at 6pm
Come join Slow Food Boston for cocktails, food, and great conversation!
Join Slow Food Boston on Tuesday, February 16th for the second monthly Slow Food Social! Throughout the year, we will host Slow Food Socials (aka cocktail hour!) at various bars and restaurants around town to encourage Slow Food members and the Boston food community at large to learn more about the Slow Food movement and connect with like-minded folks. The inaugural Slow Food Social last month was sold out, so be sure to reserve your spot today!
This month’s Slow Food Social will be at Henrietta’s Table in Cambridge, where Chef Peter Davis’s culinary philosophy is “fresh from the farm and honest-to-goodness New England cooking.” There will be a cash bar, along with complimentary light appetizers.
Space is limited to 50 people so reserve your spot today.
Thanks to those of you who attended our 1st annual Disco Soup event at Ashley Street Kitchen in East Boston, it was a success! We are grateful for all our volunteers who came and helped prepare delicious meals using would-be wasted produce for those in need this holiday season.
We would also like to recognize our amazing partners, Ashley Street Teaching Kitchen and the East Boston Food Policy Council - this event would not have been made possible without their generosity and expertise. A huge thank you to our vendors who provided a delicious meal for us, East Boston Oysters for their beautiful, fresh oysters, La Sanghita for providing equally delicious vegetarian options, Boostrap Compost and Harvard Food Law and Policy Clinic for all their support, and last but not least, Food For Free, who donated the produce for our cause. Also want to give a big shout out to DJ Salim Akram (of Bad Rabbits) and DJ Gary Carlow for providing great music for our disco!
Disco Soup was an idea to raise awareness on how much food in our global agricultural system goes to waste every year, particularly misshapen produce commonly discarded for not meeting cosmetic standards of food distributors. We encourage you to continue supporting food waste initiatives by "eating ugly" and play an active role in preventing food waste in your community.
