WHAT WE DO

At a local level, Slow Food Shoalhaven's activities are geared towards supporting a thriving Food Community. The priorities and projects we work on to realise that are:

SHAKE THE HAND THAT FEEDS YOU:
(understand where your food comes from, how and by whom it was produced)

1. Shoalhaven Grows Producers Grant - $5000 Grant Pool available each year
2. Shoalhaven Producers Directory -finding and promoting local growers/producers
3. Promote Farmers Market(s) - any thriving food community needs access to fresh local produce!

CHEFS ALLIANCE:
(recognising chefs, cooks, cafe's that support small scale producers and SF's philosophy)
1. Snail of Approval: a visual appreciation of establishments that use/feature local produce
2. Organising Fun and Social Events that celebrate the 'Slow Food way of life'

HANDS ON:
(learn more about growing, eating and preparing tasty, seasonal, fresh and wholesome food)
1. Workshops: Veggie Club (grow/cook veggies) and Culture Club (ferment/bake/brew)
2. Tools & Skills: organising classes and interesting guest speakers on food topics

MENU FOR CHANGE:
(understand the impact of our daily food choices on your health, society and our planet)
1. Inspiration: guest speakers, forums, discussions on important food-related issues
2. Education: engaging our community and especially children in Good/Clean/Fair Food
