Last summer, Slow Food Denver awarded six $1000 microgrants to small, entrepreneurial businesses who are making things happen in our local food community. We’re pleased to announce that the second round of our C.A.F.E. microgrant program is open for applications.
We encourage Metro Denver individuals, small businesses, and/or non-profits with innovative ideas in the realm of sustainable food to apply. We’re especially looking for projects that encompass:
- Children and Food: Projects that seek to increase the number of children who have access to real food in schools, learn where food comes from, and have experience growing, cooking, and sharing it
- Healthy Food Access: Projects that seek to increase access to affordable, real food in low-income communities
- Regional Biodiversity: Projects that seek to increase, protect, and promote biodiverse food and farming traditions that are an alternative to the industrial food system.
Applications are due by May 4, 2012 and instructions are in the form. Download the application and instructions here. Visit the C.A.F.E. page under the Community Table link above for more details.
It’s been a long journey, but Slow Food Denver is pleased to debut our new web site. Here you’ll find information about our programs, our events, our leadership, and how to get involved with Slow Food Denver.
Please take a few minutes to look around. If you find anything that doesn’t work, just let us know. And if you have any suggestions about our content, we’d like to hear them. Be sure to check back often — this will be the place to learn about everything Slow Food Denver is doing.
Thanks to Kathleen Rector for the design, Marilyn Noble for the content, Krista Roberts for the technical support and an eagle eye, and Tammara Hanna-Anansi for getting the event listings together. It truly was a team effort by a group of dedicated volunteers.
We have lots of exciting things coming up here at Slow Food Denver — crop mobs, farm tours, CAFE dinners and so much more. Check back often to see what’s happening!
