BENEFITING: SLOW FOOD U S A INC
EVENT DATE: Dec 05, 2010
While I have been meaning to run for a "purpose" in the past, this is the first time I am taking action. The cause I am running for is Slow Food USA. "Slow Food is an idea, a way of living and a way of eating. It is a global, grassroots movement with thousands of members around the world that links the pleasure of food with a commitment to community and the environment."
Think of Slow Food as the opposite of Fast Food. With more than 200 Local Chapters across the country, they offer educational events and activities to promote sustainability and biodiversity. They envision a world in which all people can eat food that is good for them, good for the people who grow it, and good for the planet.

Please support me in my run; all funds will go directly to Slow Food USA and their national programs to educate through school and campus-based initiatives and their support of local and regional foods.
My kindest thanks,
