Slow Food Utah Accepting Micro-Grant Applications

Every year, Slow Food Utah takes applications from the community for micro-grants. This program was created for local food-related projects, especially for small-scale food growers and producers, community innovators, and educators.

In the past Slow Food has funded school gardens, the building of a goat barn, purchase of a tractor, seeds and greenhouse supplies, new baby piglets, and much more. All this is possible with help from our donors and our annual fundraising event, the Feast of Five Senses.
Any individual, small business, or non-profit committed to Slow Food International principles of good, clean, fair food, cultural diversity, and convivality can apply.

High priorities include projects that help increase or enhance:
  • local skills and capacity,
  • the availability of locally produced foods
    (especially artisanal, Ark of Taste, wildcrafted, heirloom, or sustainably produced),
  • regional and cultural food traditions,
  • taste or youth education.

Download a copy of the application form and follow the detailed instructions on Slow Food's website.

Slow Food Utah is a non-profit organization dedicated, in part, to promoting the "eat local" movement, small independent farms, local producers & retailers, and food artisans. We are engaged in food education such as Slow Food in Schools. We link producers and consumers, foster community, support eating local foods and support local farmers. 

"Bringing everyone to the table to celebrate the pleasures of 
good, clean, fair food."
