The speeches were inspirational, the market was irresistible, and the food was delicious. It was a privilege to be at Slow Food Nation. Over and over, I was reminded that Northwest Ohio has the ingredients for a great food system, and that Slow Food Maumee Valley can help create it. Slow Food USA took a huge step forward at Slow Food Nation, and as members we have the opportunity to be a part of new programs and help to grow a stronger, more focused organization. Are you ready?
