Farm to Every Fork is a coalition of farmers, urban gardeners, food banks, Slow Food Sacramento, and food justice activists. Together we advocate and act for good, clean, and fair food for all.
The purpose of the Farm to Every Fork dinner is to bring community members together to discuss food access and hunger related issues in our community and to strengthen the support and network of individuals fighting to make change around hunger and poverty in the greater Sacramento area.
All proceeds of this event benefit local organizations serving the low income, food insecure, and/or homeless community, including the Sacramento Homeless Organizing Committee/Homeward Street Journal, Oak Park Sol Community Gardens, Angels of the Fields, TLC Food Kitchen, Sacramento Loaves & Fishes and the Sacramento Hunger Coalition.
Slow Food Sacramento is the local chapter of the international nonprofit Slow Food whose mission is good, clean and fair food for all. Slow Food believes the food we eat should taste good; be produced in a clean way that does not harm the environment, animal welfare or our health; and, that food producers should receive fair compensation.
