Slow Food Youth Network Calgary
Slow Food is an international organization that stands at the crossroads of ecology, gastronomy, ethics and pleasure. The organization was founded in 1989 as a reaction against the upcoming fast food chains. It opposes the standardization of taste and the growth and unrestrained power of multinationals in the food industry.
Slow Food strives for high quality food, produced in a sustainable way … and, of course, food that tastes good! It is essential, not only for us, but also for the future of the earth to change the present food system. Slow Food promotes small-scale agriculture, protects biodiversity and fights food industry’s politics of endless growth.
Every two years Slow Food organizes a big meeting for a network of food communities and congress in Turin: Salone del Gusto and Terra Madre. People from all over the world who support a sustainable food system gather there to show their artisanal and local products and to exchange knowledge, experiences and ideas.

Essential viewing. The life of a strawberry in 60 seconds. The message is loud and clear.
A Calgary event in conjunction with the international call to action against Monsanto.
Join in as people in hundreds of communities around the planet stand together in opposition to the many harms and corruptions perpetrated by Monsanto and its subsidiaries.
Please bring your banners, placards, drums and energy for working together to make a better world.
This event is intended to be welcoming to families and people of all ages, so we kindly ask for participants to contribute to making it a safe space for all who attend.
BREAKING: The Chinese Army has banned GMO grains and oils from the military food supply, citing health & safety concerns. This move by the Chinese army is being seen as yet another step towards the Chinese government’s expected ban on the import of all GMO grains and oilseeds within the next 2 years, due to growing public concern over GMO safety. The expected ban would be a huge blow to the Biotech industry worldwide. This leads us to ask... growing concern in China? What about us?!
