Why Slow Food?

“The opposite of fast food, an international movement that emphasizes eating seasonally, regionally, and pleasurably”

Why Slow Bloomington?

“Bloomington has a vibrant restaurant scene and other culinary resources that most towns of its size are unlikely to have”

Slow Food:
Not to be rushed, the movement finally arrives in Bloomington
