The $5 Challenge - Take Back the 'Value Meal'
September 17, 2011 12:00 am until 12:00 am
National Day of Action - Anywhere and everywhere in Richmond!On Saturday, Sept 17th Slow Food USA's 2011 $5 Challenge campaign to Take Back the 'Value Meal' will launch with a national Day of Action, where we are encouraging people to take a pledge to cook a slow food meal for $5 per person or less. Slow food shouldn't - and doesn't - have to cost more than fast food. Stage a potluck, cook a meal for your family or friends, or for a crowd and charge $5 at the door. Get creative and help us bring attention to the challenges many people face - and overcome - in feeding their families healthy, sustainable food.
Slow Food RVa will help coordinate groups wanting to gather and shop at Richmond area farmers' markets for $5 per person, then cook and enjoy together a family-style meal. Contact us for guidance at firstname.lastname@example.org
