Slow Food Orange County is in the beginning stages of developing a Microgrant Program that will distribute small cash awards to local community groups, organizations, and businesses whose programs and products promote the core values of Slow Food. We believe that the food we eat should taste good, that it should be produced in a clean way that does not harm the environment or our health, and that food producers should receive fair compensation for their work.
Slow Food Orange County is an entirely volunteer-run chapter of the non-profit organization Slow Food USA. To date, our budget is supported by local fundraising and event fees. In the interest of strengthening our local food culture and supporting our mission, we are excited to begin offering a limited number of microgrants to community groups, locally-owned small businesses, non-profit organizations, and individuals.
Application and eligibility information will be available on our website soon. If you have any questions, please contact Wayan Kaufman at .
