Slow Food UW
Slow Food UW is a food justice organization that hosts many of their events in our building. From their website:
“Slow Food UW was founded in 2007 by Genya Erling as a way to bring local foods from Southern Wisconsin farmers to the campus. The small group of students who spent their days cooking and enjoying local food together are the pioneers of our current organization. The organization slowly grew as members and volunteers spread the word. Our mission sets itself apart from the broader Slow Food movement by looking to provide good, clean, fair food at an affordable price for all.”
“Our mission is to promote and model an alternative food system where food is good, clean, and fair for all by supporting sustainable food production, creating an inviting communityaround food, and advancing food justice in the Madison area.”
Slow Food currently hosts Family Dinner Nights on Mondays and the Slow Food Café on Wednesdays during lunch. See our calendar for Slow Food events held at The Crossing. Find more information at http://slowfood-uw.org/ or by emailing email@example.com.
