Formerly known as the Eat Local Challenge, Slow Food Denver is reinventing it’s annual September fundraiser as the Celebrate Local Campaign, a way to celebrate Colorado growers, producers and food purveyors while raising awareness of the many benefits of buying and eating locally grown.
By making local food choices you help build a strong local economy, reduce your environmental impact, and build meaningful connections in your community.
Throughout the month of September Slow Food Denver will provide resources on how to eat, shop and live locally. We will also host a variety of events to engage with Slow Food at different levels including:
- A Celebrate Local brunch
- A Celebrate Local dinner
- A Celebrate Local social
Stay tuned for more details on how to attend!
Wondering how to find your local eating essentials? Slow Food Denver will assemble Colorado made Harvest Baskets as part of the Celebrate Local Fundraiser! Baskets will vary on size and contents based on donation ($100-$250).
This bag will include local:
- Pickled goods
- Cured Meats
- Pantry staples like oil and grains
- Alcoholic and Nonalcoholic libations
- And more!
