To help interested people learn more about the benefits of eating Slow and local, Slow Food Seacoast partners with Seacoast Eat Local, Seacoast Local, and Seacoast Growers Association (SGA) to train a corps of Local Food Advocates.
These enthusiastic and informed volunteers talk with people at the farmer’s markets and other events and festivals. Local Food Advocates can
- Provide maps and information about farmer’s markets run by SGA in Portsmouth, Durham, Dover, Exeter, Hampton, and Kingston.
- Distribute print copies of Seacoast Harvest: A Local Food Guide.
- Describe the many ways eating locally benefits our economy, culture, health, and environment.
- Let folks know about upcoming events, classes, and opportunities to get more involved in local food.
We are always looking for more Local Food Advocates to help reach new people and spread the word! There’s a simple, 2-hour training program. To inquire about our next training session, please email Slow Food Seacoast with “I Want to Be a Local Food Advocate” in the subject line.
