Free event

We were already certain of the fact before the health emergency, but with Covid-19 it has become even more evident. Namely that food is a potent tool for welcoming, involving and including all those on the fringes of society. In other words, it is a path of solidarity.

The Slow Food network has launched a great many social and solidarity projects for youngsters with disabilities, migrants, people of no fixed abode, and troubled urban suburbs. Here we tell you their stories through some of the individuals involved.


  • Alessio Gatta, President of the Inchiostro social cooperative in Cremona.
  • Don Federico Battaglia of Laudato Si’ Vesuvio.
  • Christina Pooler, farmer, educator and activist with Slow Food Barbados.
  • Themba Chauke, Slow Food Garden Coordinator in South Africa.
  • Yoonjin Ji, Slow Food activist.
  • Jur Jacobs, Slow Food Netherlands, Entrepreneur in food inequality. Co-founder of De Seizoenarbeiders and SFYN-activist. 


  • Raoul Tiraboschi, vicepresident of Slow Food Italy.

Free entry while seats last. We advise you to arrive 10 minutes before the event starts to ensure a place.
