Slow Food USA is about more than just cooking and enjoying good food while decrying the downfalls of the average American diet. According to Krista Roberts, director of Slow Food Denver, the organization is committed to "good, clean, and fair food." As part of that mission, the organization created C.A.F.E. (community, art, food and education) four years ago to provide support and funding to local food-based organizations. Slow Food Denver has teamed with Chipotle and Grow Local Colorado to select three organizations to receive microgrants at a dinner to be held at Harman's Eat and Drink in Cherry Creek North on Monday, September 8.
Harman's will host one of this year's Slow Food Denver microgrant dinners.
