SLOW FOOD DENVER COVID-19 RESPONSE

The Slow Food Denver team members are working remotely and our office is closed during this time. But we are hard at work to support our local food system. Community is at the heart of Slow Food, and at the heart of our food system. Thus, we are working alongside our food system partners to support our farmers and ranchers, members of the restaurant and hospitality industry, and those facing food insecurity.

FRESH FOOD ACCESS

Join us for a series of garden tending volunteer days and events with Grow Local Colorado. Due to the increased demand at food shelters, pantries and more, we are collaborating with Grow Local Colorado to support an increase in fresh food access for our most vulnerable populations in Denver.

Lil’ Sprouts Online Cooking Classes

Cooking from the Garden has gone virtual! In response to the changing environment, we are bringing the richness of our after-school enrichment program to you. While classes are a bit different than when we’re in person, we’re not letting that stop us from helping kids and students develop a healthier and more intimate relationship with food.
