Santa Cruz Heritage Foods

Slow Food USA works to preserve American food traditions through the Ark of Taste and RAFT programs.  We’re bringing these projects to Santa Cruz by identifying foods that are unique to this area, part of our local heritage, and/or in danger of being lost in this region.  If you have information about foods that might fit into these projects, or if you’re interested in growing and/or processing foods of this nature, get in touch with us.
