We launched Slow Food Denver C.A.F.E. in 2011 with the intent of building community through art, food, and education. Our first venture was the Slow Food Denver C.A.F.E. microgrant project. As a result, over the past three years we have successfully awarded $12,000 in microgrants to support local, sustainable food projects.
Each year, Slow Food Denver, Chipotle, and Grow Local Colorado select six finalists from numerous applicants to receive micro-grants of up to $3,000, furthering the work of food-focused organizations in the Denver Metro area.
The first three finalists for this year will present their work on Monday, September 8th at Harman’s Eat & Drink, where you will decide which organization receives $3,000, which receives $1,500, and who takes home $500 (everyone wins here!)
The evening will feature Jennifer Olson Photography and the three presenting finalists are:
Tickets are $65 per person, which includes cocktail reception, three courses with wine pairings, tax, gratuity, and a $40 tax-deductible contribution to the C.A.F.E. micro-grant program, helping to provide continued support to creative sustainable food organizations in Denver.
