Food day is Monday, October 24th. One way to be involved is to spend your money supporting local, organic, good food. 2011 is the first year that Slow Food DC is sponsoring the Snail of Approval Award. We opened nominations in November of 2010 and held an awards party to present each winner with a certificate and a decal to place in their window.
Food Day is about eating real. It is about supporting good food and good agriculture. We hope that you consider going to one of the Snail of Approval award winners, either to dine out or pick up artisan products to use at home. It’s about respecting the work done by these restaurants and producers.
And just so you have a chance to help reward folks doing the right thing, nominations for 2012 Snail of Approval awards are open and waiting your entries! In fact, some restaurants and markets are explicitly involved in Food Day this year. So head out to one of these places, let them know about Slow Food and Food Day. Inquire as to where they get their food. Let them know that you appreciate the hard work they do.
