10% of the proceeds of this coffee go to the Slow Food Kansas City.
Slow Food Kansas City, a local convivium, focuses on food, local growers and the food preparation practices within different cultures. Slow Food teaches about choice and season — choosing food produced in season for the prime taste in the food you eat. Slow Food not only attempts to preserve authentic ingredients in food preparation, but is also dedicated to maintaining traditions that are sometimes centuries old. Part of this new interest in locally grown, seasonable fare is that the people of Kansas City want the option to choose local, sometimes organic foods. This desire has generated interest in and support for farmers markets, restaurant tastings of an array of food and wine and other local offerings in the Kansas City area.
Slow Food USA seeks to create dramatic and lasting change in the food system, reconnecting Americans with the people, traditions, plants, animals, fertile soils and waters that produce our food. The organization seeks to inspire a transformation in food policy, production practices and market forces so that they ensure equity, sustainability and pleasure in the food we eat.
