Also from Slow Food Canada: Donate to Help Send 15 Young Canadians to Milan for International Slow Food Event October 3-6, 2016

The International Slow Food Youth organization is organizing “We Feed the Planet”, an event which will take place in Milan as part of the World Expo. Fifteen young producers from Canada hope to participate in this event to add their voices to the crucial, global dialogue on agriculture, sustainability and the future condition of our planet, all while building networks and making connections. A fundraising campaign has been set up to raise $30,000 in order to cover the roundtrip airfare for each delegate to Milan. For more information and to give your support, visit the campaign website. Here is the list of the 15 participants:

  • Lydia Carpenter, Manitoba
  • Bethany Klapwyk, Ontario
