Terra Madre Day
December 10, 2018 – Terra Madre Day
Raise your fork to take part in the IXth Terra Madre Day
Terra Madre Day is a major Slow Food event, celebrating local food on a global scale. Every December, on the 10th thousands of people around the world organize parties and gatherings to celebrate good, clean and fair food: good quality and flavorsome; clean for our bodies, for animals and for the planet; fair for producers and consumers alike. Terra Madre Day brings together all who share the vision of a food system that supports local economies, that respects the environment, biodiversity, taste, and tradition. A better alternative is possible!
To protect our environment and to shine a light on the link between food and climate change, this year, Terra Madre Day is focused on Food for Change, Slow Food’s international fundraising campaign to highlight the role of food as a cause, victim, and potential solution to climate change.
