Slow Food Nation
Slow Food Nation 2008
The first Slow Food Nation meeting was held Labor Day weekend (August 29 – September 1) in San Francisco. Over 60,000 people converged on San Francisco to celebrate and consume good, clean, and fair food. The Institute for Fisheries Resources, along with Commercial Fishermen of America, have been working with the Slow Food planning committee to ensure that fishermens’ role in our country’s food system was included in the discussion. The weekend offered many opportunities for learning about food and food systems, which ranged from tasting workshops, educational panels, a marketplace, Victory Garden feasts, tours of different “foodsheds”, a concert, and a huge Taste Pavilion experience.
