Dear Foodie, Meet Erin. Erin first learned of the complex issues surrounding food and agriculture in high school, when she started working with her dad at his business, Butter Bakery Café, in Minneapolis.
As she worked with her dad to source product for the bakery, she wondered why it was more difficult and more expensive to source local and organic food. Erin began to see that public policy played a huge role in people's access to real food. Now a sophomore at Oberlin College in Ohio, Erin became a Slow Food on Campus leader because she wanted to gather other students who shared her passion to make a difference. She and the chapter raise awareness around food issues by leading cooking workshops, organizing food summits, hosting film screenings, and creating partnerships with local farmers. Today, Erin is discouraging Congress from passing dangerous cuts to the agricultural budget. These cuts would destroy critical programs that make sustainable farming viable and give us all access to real, healthy food.
The best way to make an impact on such issues is to help the people who are most directly impacted meet with decision makers in person. Your donation will send Erin to DC along with a local farmer to give a real voice to real food. We need to raise $25,000 in the next 10 days to build a campaign that stops these cuts and continues to support the work that people like Erin are doing all over the country to raise awareness about food policy issues.
Thank you, Jerusha Klemperer Associate Director of National Programs Slow Food USA
