Slow Food USA asking for food nominations

  • Subject: [cg] Slow Food USA asking for food nominations

Hi, Folks!

The following is from the President of Slow Food-Philadelphia Chapter.  The international Slow Food organization promotes
biodiversity, sustainable agriculture, taste education, and support of local artisanal food producers.  By nominating a food to the "Ark," these foods (and the processes that make them) receive both local and international publicity that can help those who produce the food make enough money to keep producing that food!

Dorene Pasekoff, Coordinator
St. John's United Church of Christ Organic Community Garden

A mission of
St. John's United Church of Christ, 315 Gay Street, Phoenixville, PA  19460

******************************

From:
"Hansjakob Werlen" <hwerlen1@swarthmore.edu>

As a member of the Ark and Presidia committee, I would like to ask for help with nominating special products of our area that need and deserve the support of Slow Food.  The following criteria should be considered when nominating a food to the Ark USA:

*       Does the food provide a unique, pleasurable, high quality gastronomic experience?
*       Is the food or its method of production at risk of extinction?
*       Is food produced or harvested sustainably?
*       Is the food historically, socio-economically, or culturally tied to a specific region or locality? Is it cultivated or produced according to specific techniques?

No product containing genetically modified raw materials and no transgenic breed or plant will be placed on the Ark USA.

Nominations can be made directly on the Ark website
