THIS IS SLOW FOOD: This year Slow Food Chicago is partnering with Urban Growers Collective, Bungalow by MiddleBrow and Apologue Liqueurs to bring you a “Slow Drinks” Cocktail Kit filled with local, artisanal goods and Slow Food swag to enjoy alongside a special virtual event on the evening of October 22nd, 5:30-7:00pm. The event will feature a cocktail demo by Orlando Zapata of Apologue using the ingredients from the kit, alongside a discussion moderated by Midwest Slow Food Governor, Jennifer Breckner, on good, clean and fair food and an introduction to the products and makers featured in the kit. All proceeds from the kit and event will benefit Slow Food Chicago and our local partner, Urban Growers Collective. Attendance to this virtual event is free and registration is now open. Cocktail Kits will be available for purchase from Bungalow by Middlebrow October 15th - 22nd. Over the next month we're excited to share stories of the impact that your support will have on both of our organizations and our work to support good, clean and fair food for all. We look forward to raising a glass with you in support of our Slow Food community!
About Slow Food Chicago: The Slow Food movement originated in Italy in 1986, and has since grown to become a respected international network with members in over 160 countries and 150 chapters in the U.S alone. Our Chicago chapter was established in 1998 and is entirely volunteer-run. We are one of the largest and most active chapters in the U.S! Each year we organize dozens of events to connect Chicagoans with their food and with each other: farm-to-table meals, cooking classes, potlucks, farm tours, product tastings, and more – emphasizing seasonal and artisanal food products from our region. We also maintain a community vegetable garden in North Lawndale, in partnership with the North Lawndale Greening Committee, Neighborspace, and Chicago Honey Co-op. For more information about our chapter, please visit our website at http://www.slowfoodchicago.org.
About Urban Growers Collective: Rooted in growing food, Urban Growers Collective cultivates nourishing environments which support health, economic development, healing and creativity through urban agriculture. Founded in 2017, UGC is a black and women led organization which aims to address the inequities and structural racism that exist in the food system and in communities of color. They use urban agriculture as their tool and method for this work. Urban Growers Collective’s approach is to demonstrate and support communities in developing community-based food systems where food is grown, prepared, and/or distributed within these same communities. Urban Growers Collective meets their mission through two approaches: education initiatives, particularly job-training, and food access. In these ways, vulnerable populations help themselves by learning how to provide for their own needs in a sustainable manner. Learn more at https://urbangrowerscollective.
