We are seeking a writer who is tuned-in to the world of good food and wants to publish for Slow Food Minnesota. You'll be in charge of researching what is happening with local, sustainable farmers, chefs, and food activists in the community and telling the stories that are often missed or overlooked.
At the start, you'll dig for articles of what grassroots food leaders and organizations are working on and provide a weekly roundup of what's going on in the world of good, clean, fair food. Food justice, sustainability, worker's rights. Your roundup should share with the food community: 1. Stories that bring joy and hope by highlighting work being done 2. Stories that highlight ways we can take action toward food justice
Once you feel comfortable with the cadence of this role, you'll have the opportunity to reach out to food leaders in the community directly. Then, you'll be the one seeking out the people whose stories are not being told, and writing, recording, or filming content that highlights those folks and their journey.
It’s our mission to promote healthy farm ecosystems, awareness of the circular food economy, and our ability to support local organizations doing meaningful work in the food equity space. We’re here to provide Minnesotans with opportunities to volunteer time, connect with like-minded individuals, develop skills to be advocates for food justice, and donate. Together we can make an impact and change our food system so that it works for all people.
The Slow Food movement began in 1986, when the people of Italy protested against the first McDonald's in Rome. It can be most succinctly described as the opposite of fast food, but it encompasses so much more. The joy of growing, cooking, eating, and sharing food with the responsibility to produce it in harmony with nature and humanity.
We are a chapter in an international Slow Food movement, with organizations on every continent, all working to foster good, clean, fair food for all. We have been working to advance Slow Food in Minnesota since 1999. We hope you'll join us in making the food system work better for everyone in our community.
