There is a lot of debate within our local and national chapters about what types of political issues Slow Food should get behind. What do you think? Would you be interested in aligning ourselves with other groups that have organized around a cause? Here is an example of a group that is tackling GMO issues and Monsanto in particular: http://organicconsumers.org/monsanto/index.cfm. I’d like to start a discussion about this type of action with our membership so feel free to drop me a line at or comment on the blog or Facebook!
