Slow Food KC and Food Day

Slow Food USA launched a campaign last month asking people to share a healthy meal that costs less than $5 to prove that “slow food” does not have to cost more than fast food. They have a section of their website dedicated to what they call the $5 Challenge where people can sign up, share photos and get recipes (https://secure3.convio.net/sfusa/site/SPageServer?pagename=5Challenge_Home).

World Food Day is on October 16. Slow Food USA has set a $5 Challenge on this day to make a meal for less than five bucks. Read more about the challenge here.

The US-based Food Day takes place on October 24. The Slow Food KC Harvest Dinner on Sunday, October 16 kicks off the Greater Kansas City celebration of Food Day. Because we’re charging those who do not bring a dish $5, it seems appropriate that we challenge everyone that does bring a dish to keep it at $5. It sort of ties it all together. If people want to share their recipes then we can post them on our website to show support for the Slow Food USA challenge on an ongoing basis.
