Slow Food Santa Cruz was invited to participate in a buffet featuring local foods for 125 USDA employees April 20, 2010 at the University Inn. In addition to hosting a table and educating the federal agency’s staff about the Slow Food movement, Slow Food Santa Cruz facilitated the procurement of the local ingredients in the meal. SFSC was proud to support local farmers and processors and show off the bounty of the Region.
The USDA staff also attended the downtown Farmer’s Market and enjoyed local foods again at an agency dinner at the Long Marine Lab. Kudos to Donna and team for working two huge events in just a few days!
