Slow Food is something that Father Linnane wanted to see happen on campus. Slow Food USA is a movement at colleges all over the country, usually organized by students. The Slow Food motto is “good, clean, and fair,” meaning that the food is “created with care from healthy plants and animals, is as good for the planet as it is for our bodies, and is grown and harvested with methods that have a positive impact on our local ecosystems and promotes biodiversity.”
This is a five course served dinner that seeks to promote community between students and faculty/staff/administrators. The tickets are $30 and can be purchased at Boulder, Surf’n Joe’s, or Newman C-Store. OR LISTEN IN TO Rich the DJ tonight from 5-7pm, and he’ll be giving them away!
