Slow Food Eugene Fundraising Priorities for 2008
The Slow Food Eugene Leaders Group set our fund raising priorities for 2008. They include:
- Sending our local representatives to Terra Madre 2008 in Turin, Italy
- The School Garden Project
- The Willamette Food and Farm Coalition
In addition, a number of great projects and requests come up from time to time that we would love to support. One interesting project that we supported recently was a video project by Salmon Nation to complete a documentary called Red Gold. It exposes the next threat to wild salmon in Bristol Bay, AK. Pebble Mine, the largest open pit mining operation ever conceived is to be located at the headwaters of Bristol Bay. We are dedicated to making the world a better place through the food that we eat. Thanks for your great support.
