Hello. Sorry for the late notice. We only just got word that tonight's planned speaker for our "Cheese-making 102" workshop has been forced to postpone, due to unforseen circumstances. We're very sorry for any inconvenience this has caused and will announce a new, re-scheduled date as soon as possible. Sorry, again!
Hey, everyone! Our program director Bryan Alexander was featured in the "Wellness Heroes" section of the latest issue of 225! The interview highlights the work Slow Food has done in four area elementary schools over the last year. Hoping for many more years of the same!

Friends and supporters,
All of us here at Slow Food BR regretfully have to cancel this years Dinner in the Field fundraising event.
Slow Food Baton Rouge (SFBR) would like to thank you for your generosity and support of our annual fundraiser, Dinner in the Field. Unfortunately, the number of tickets sold to date will not allow us to move forward with this event. We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience and will be issuing refunds for anyone who has already purchased tickets. SFBR is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that depends on outside funding and donations to help us continue our sustainable, local food work in Baton Rouge, including our inaugural Farm to School program Greauxing Healthy Baton Rouge (GHBR) and the new Cooking Matters for Families classes being offered in Old South..
GHBR has been implemented in 3 public schools with over 150 students over the past 9 months, and we’re working with students, teachers and volunteers to design school gardens, prepare healthy local snacks, and introduce students to chefs and farmers from their community! We even held our first Cooking Matters for Families class this week night with 15 parents and students from Dufrocq and University Terrace!
To help us support and sustain Greauxing Healthy Baton Rouge, please consider making a tax-deductible donation to Slow Food Baton Rouge today!
And be on the lookout for smaller fundraisers in the future!
