SFUW went from serving sustainable food and providing education programs face to face to hundreds of students and community members a week, to providing food and meals while social distancing. Given Covid protocols, we could no longer serve 100+ people at Family Dinner Night or more during our Cafe. So we focused our efforts on pivoting our Market Basket program and to developing contactless to-go meals. Given the detrimental effects of the pandemic on local producers, we made the decision to source the food for these projects from local BIPOC producers. Slow Food To-Go Market Basket Program is our response to social, racial, economic, and health barriers exacerbated by the coronavirus pandemic that may place people in food apartheid. The weekly baskets include $10 (or for free courtesy of the Pay-it-Forward program) of seasonal, local, organic produce and compatible Slow Food inspired recipes. The food for the market basket is sourced from local farms operated by African American and Hmong farmers. This team would love to take on more people who have a passion for actionable work and community food access!
