What is Slow Food Toronto doing for Terra Madre Day?

We will celebrate Ontario’s local food communities with delicious sustainable food, music and family friendly activities.

  • Sample delicious local food
  • Meet farmers, fishers, cooks and food artisans
  • Buy ingredients and prepared foods for the holiday season (Please bring cash with you)
  • Learn to make informed food choices
  • Connect with a community of conscious eaters

In keeping with the theme for Terra Madre 2010 in Italy, “Indigenous Cultures and Languages”, we will highlight wild and farmed foods produced by First Nation communities in Ontario.

About Terra Madre Day
The second worldwide Terra Madre Day is being held in recognition of the importance of supporting local food networks. In 2009 the very first Terra Madre Day was organized by Slow Food and saw more than 1,000 events take place across 120 countries in one of the largest collective occasions celebrating food diversity and the right to good, clean and fair food ever achieved on a global scale. Slow Food convivia across the world will gather once again on December 10th and this year, Slow Food will have the opportunity to demonstrate not just the diversity of our network, but its connectedness and resolve, by supporting Thousand Gardens in Africa project.
