9.8/ Slow Food East End: “Come to the Table”, Shelter Island, Sept 24


“Come to the Table”

at Slow Food East End’s Annual Meeting and Community Potluck

Slow Food East End will hold its Annual Meeting and Community Potluck on Sunday, September 24 from 4:00-7:00pm at the Quinipet Camp and Retreat Center, 99 Shore Road, Shelter Island. The theme of this year’s event is “Come to the Table”.

This is Slow Food’s biggest and best potluck supper of the year, drawing Slow Food members and supporters from both the North and South Forks, as well as from Shelter Island. The event is free and open to all – members and non-members alike. If you would like to know more about the Slow Food movement and enjoy a shared meal with likeminded folks, you are urged to attend.

Reservations may be made on the Events page at www.slowfoodeastend.org. Guests should bring a dish to share made from seasonal, local ingredients – from the garden, CSA, or farm stand or market. Each dish should serve 6-8 people. Guests are also asked to bring a local beverage to share.

This event offers guests the opportunity to “meet the candidates” for Slow Food East End’s board and to learn more about Slow Food’s events, educational programs and goals for the future. Raffle tickets will be available for a 12-Piece Anolon Tri-Ply Clad Cookware Set, retail value $400.

Through its Master Farmer program and mini-grants, Slow Food provides support to schools that are part of the Edible School Garden group on the East End. Slow Food’s “Chefs to Schools” initiative brings local East End chefs into the classroom to teach the benefits of cooking with fresh, local ingredients. The Snail of Approval is awarded to East End restaurants that use local and sustainably grown produce and food products. Slow Food East End has helped educate children and adults about the benefits of eating locally and supporting the local farming community for more than ten years.
