Real Slow Foods Pot Luck Dinner

Part of establishing a strong local food community involves supporting and collaborating with groups who have similar goals. That is why this past Friday SVF decided to host a pot luck with the UConn student run organization, Real Slow Foods (RSF).

RSF's mission promotes the production of environmentally sustainable and socially just food that is healthy and enjoyable for all. They emphasize a holistic food system that encourages thinking about your food from farm to plate, considering the ways in which you can make a difference along the way. RSF works with Whitney Dining Hall and Dining Services to bring food that reflects this way of eating to UConn.

 The idea of the pot luck came with the desire to connect SVF and RSF and of course to share some good food and conversation. Check out some photos of what was made!

Everyone gathered around 

One of the members cleverly represented the idea of "Slow" food by making chocolate snails. Good idea!

A slow and steady cheese turtle.

Raisin-bran muffins 
We'll definitely be doing another pot luck here at SVF sometime again soon. Maybe a spring time theme perhaps? Stay tuned.
