To our Slow Food Community: Slow Food Denver’s Response to COVID-19

To our Denver community, 

The Slow Food Denver team members are working remotely and our office is closed during this unsettling time. But we are hard at work to support our local food system. Community is at the heart of Slow Food, and at the heart of our food system. Thus, we are working alongside our food system partners to support our farmers and ranchers, members of the restaurant and hospitality industry, and those facing food insecurity.

In line with the CDC and City of Denver recommendations, we are postponing all in-person events until further notice, including our Spring fundraiser dinner, and our Cooking from the Garden classes are on hold until schools re-open. We will keep you informed of any updates or changing news.

With all that said, yesterday was the first day of Spring (welcomed in true Colorado-style with a winter storm) – flowers are blooming, seeds are ready to be sown, the soil is waking up, and the onset of the food-producing season is here.

  1. Join us to Plant a Seed and continue to support biodiversity in gardens, on farms and at school.
  2. Stay tuned for a series of Slow Food Lives to share stories, recipes, workshops and practices for you at home.
  3. Support local farmers and ranchers through a pickup or delivery service with Boulder County Farmers Markets.
  4. Help keep local restaurants and food businesses afloat by ordering takeout and/or delivery (search #ColoradoCurbside on Instagram) or by purchasing a gift card from your favorite spot.

We are assembling a list of resources from friends and partners to support local food producers, local food businesses and the greater food community. Please send us a message or tag us @slowfooddenver if you have a resource you would like us to share.

We continue to be inspired by the strength and innovation of our community.
We hope you are all safe, healthy and, most of all, stay positive.
We’re in this together.
#wegotthisdenver

All the best,
Krista, Hannah, Annie & the Slow Food Denver team
