  1. When I tried to sign the petition, it came up as the link is broken. I would like to join Slow Food Seattle and attend the Sept. potluck and sign the petition.

    What actions do I need to take?

  2. Hi Sharon,

    That’s great! We’d love for you to join us!

    I apologize for the link break up. Please copy this link into your browser if you have trouble…http://www.slowfoodusa.org/index.php/campaign/time_for_lunch/

    1. Sign the petition
    2. Attend one of the Eat Ins scheduled for the Seattle area. Our chapter is hosting one in South Seattle at Orca School on September 3, but some members are hosting another event on Labor Day in Edmonds, too!

    You do not need to be a member to attend- but you do need to bring a dish and a beverage to share at the potluck.

    Please see the Calendar section (page tabs above) for information about each Eat In.

    To join Slow Food Seattle, you must sign up online through the USA office. Your membership will be processed through the General Store at http://slowfoodusa.org/index.php/join_us/
