DC welcomes Richard McCarthy to speak at Eat Local First week’s kickoff event

Our local Slow Food chapter was ELATED to welcome the new head of Slow Food USA to our fair city this week to celebrate the start of Eat Local First week. Richard McCarthy joined a series of notable speakers including local farmer/author Forrest Pritchard of Smith Meadows Farm, Ann Yonkers of (Snail winning) FreshFarm Markets, community gardeners, and others working to change our local food system for the better in the TED-talk-style “How Local Food Grows Our City” series. His main message: We can change policy and and opt for a more just food system through our actions and our food choices. (He also urged us not to forget the joy of sharing good food. Speaking of which….)

Because the pre- and post-talk receptions were sponsored by Slow Food DC — and supported by a handful of local Snail of Approval winners — you know the food and drink on hand was top notch. Many thanks to Busboys & Poets, DC Brau, Dino, Restaurant Nora, Sonoma Wine Bar, and The Pig and others who laid out quite a feast.
