Forget about your Winter blues!! Get ready for a foodie February…

It's a new year! Resolve to make a difference by joining Slow Food UK.

We’re 2 months into the new year and we’re all full of ideas on how to make this year better than the last, whether it’s with fresh resolutions or by recommitting to old aspirations.

If part of your plans for 2012 include becoming more involved with your local community, learning more about food issues, attending interesting events and meeting new people who share your interest in food, then make this month the time you join Slow Food UK.

Join now and be part of a movement supporting British heritage foods with our Ark of Taste project, highlighting Forgotten Foods in danger of disappearing such as the Gloucester Old Spot Pig. Your support allows us to work in promoting these foods and their producers, such as Park Mill Farm, a small farm that raises Gloucester Old Spot pigs to the highest welfare standards.

By joining Slow Food UK, you will also help our Slow Food on Campus initiative that supports students in their passions to engage with food, their local areas and each other. This initiative is a wonderful way to help students prepare for leadership roles once they leave university. For an example of some of the activities our Slow Food on Campus students engage in, have a look at our recent post: Slow Food on Campus Update.

Our local Slow Food UK groups are already starting to buzz with activities that would prick up the ears of any food fan. You can enjoy a coffee tasting with Slow Food Dorset, participate in a film and food night with Slow Food Edinburgh, or learn how to make marmalade and lemon curd with Slow Food Solent. Whether big or small, members of local groups–such as Slow Food Herefordshire, Slow Food Cornwall and Slow Food London–would love to have new people willing to lend a hand in supporting the group.

If there isn’t a local UK group in your area, take the initiative to start one up. You will build a local presence promoting sustainable food while also creating a fun way to meet with others in your local community.

There are many other reasons to join Slow Food UK, but why not find out firsthand? Join in February and we’ll thank you by sending a bottle of Kentish cobnut oil from Hurstwood Farm if you pay a minimum of just £3 a month by Direct Debit as an individual, or £4 a month for a family membership. For the cost of a coffee and scone each month, you can make a difference for yourself, for your area and for what we all share to eat here in the UK.

So, help make a difference and Join in February! Let this be one Slow Start you’ll enjoy throughout the year.
