We launched Slow Food Denver C.A.F.E. in 2011 with the intent of building community through art, food, and education. Our first venture was the Slow Food Denver C.A.F.E. microgrant project. As a result, over the past three years we have successfully awarded $12,000 in microgrants to support local, sustainable food projects.
Each year, Slow Food Denver, Chipotle, and Grow Local Colorado select six finalists from numerous applicants to receive micro-grants of up to $3,000, furthering the work of food-focused organizations in the Denver Metro area.
With thanks to Chipotle and Grow Local Colorado for providing matching funds to support the micro-grants.
