Enjoy live music, learn about the “farm to table” movement, and participate in hands-on activities! This event is family focussed, with lots of fun activities and recipes you can take home.
For over forty years, Alice Waters has been a vanguard of the food movement in the United States. Since the founding of her restaurant, Chez Panisse, she has been a champion of local, sustainable, and organic food, while educating on seasonal eating, knowing where your food comes from, and of course incredible flavor.
We hope you can make it to this free, family-friendly event. Expect to see many organizations that also work on food issues. Questions? just let us know by emailing info (at) slowfooddc.org
