Thank you to everyone who has supported Slow Food Nation by getting a box of hand-picked California fruit delivered to their doorstep. In just three months, we have raised over $7,400 for education and youth engagement at Slow Food Nation. The deadline for ordering a June box is Friday, June 20, and the $59 price includes delivery to any address in California. More information about what is included in this month’s box is available by calling The Fruit Guys at 650.246.1200 or http://www.fruitguys.com.
· Working to promote quality, locally produced food on our campus and in our community.
We are guided and sponsored by the Russian River Convivium.
WHY WE CARE
· Farm workers are the most exploited labor force in the American economy.
· Our food production system is extremely fragile and is showing signs that it may collapse.
· Food is a culture-creator. It brings people together.
· Food not only nourishes: it gives us pleasure.
