One of the perks of not being a management consultant is NOT traveling. Seriously, for almost 4 years I lived out of a suitcase from Monday to Thursday. I could pack like a champ, sometimes with just 3 pieces of clothing and a toothbrush. Now that I am in the same place Monday through Sunday (!!!) I am able to participate in my community. Since healthy food is my number one interest, Slow Food, is an organization that is close to my heart. Here’s how the organization describes itself:

Slow Food Philadelphia is a chapter of an international grassroots movement, represented in more than 130 countries, working to reconnect us with the people, traditions, plants, animals, fertile soils and waters that produce our food. We want to inspire a transformation in food policy, production practices and market forces so that they ensure equity, sustainability and pleasure in the food we eat.

Slow Food partners with different organizations to put on great events and there’s one coming up: Good Food, Good Beer and the Rest is History. There will be food tastings from restaurants offering sustainable fair, including Fork and Penne as well as complimentary beer, donated by the brewers, including Victory and Stoudts.

If you’re in Philly, please come and support Slow Food and Farm to City. Details below.
