Slow Food U.S.A. is a non-profit educational organization dedicated to supporting and celebrating the food traditions of North America.
The Slow Food Yolo Convivium is run by co-leaders Georgeanne Brennan and Ann M. Evans with the help of the Executive Committee. Members of a convivium get together or put on events several times a year, such as a tasting or dinner at which local products are tasted, enjoyed and discussed. Events are often led by the producer or someone else familiar with the product. Convivia engage in community outreach activities and are always on the lookout for endangered foods or small-scale producers that they may be able to help. As a member, there are many ways to get involved and be heard.
Slow Food Yolo events are open to anyone interested. Registration priority is given to Slow Food members and, on occasion, a few events may be limited to members only. Check event listings - both on the Davis Wiki and at our website http://www.slowfoodyolo.com for more information. To join Slow Food USA, visit their web site: http://www.slowfoodusa.org. Student memberships are $30, individual memberships are $60 a year, couple memberships are $75 a year. When you sign up, you will be asked which "Convivium" you want to be a part of - select "Yolo Convivium" and you're on board for a variety of wonderful events.
Their signature event is the Village Feast, a fundraiser for the Davis Farm to School Connection.
