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 two years we have successfully awarded $9000 in microgrants to support local, sustainable food projects.
The 2013 C.A.F.E. microgrant dinner series is here!
We have selected six finalists whose projects seek to increase access to affordable, real food in their community and/or seek to increase, protect and promote biodiverse food and farming traditions. Each finalist will have the opportunity to present their proposals at a C.A.F.E. dinner for the chance to receive a microgrant of up to $3000. All dinner guests will cast their votes for their favorite initiative and the awards will be announced after dessert that evening.
