Exclusive Webinar Series: Slow Meat 2015- Turning the Herd Toward Better Meat, Less Meat

The next installment of Food Tank’s Exclusive Webinar Series will feature Megan Larmer, Associate Director of Strategic Initiatives at Slow Food USA. Larmer will present on the Slow Meat movement. The event will take place Wednesday, March 4 from 12pm to 1pm ET.

Slow Meat is a movement that actualizes the culture of confinement plaguing the issue of meat, and it is an event that brings together ranchers, farmers, butchers, chefs, eaters and more to celebrate and share ideas on how we can turn the herd toward meat that is good, clean and fair for all.

Slow Food will host the second Slow Meat event on June 4 - 6 in Denver, Colorado. The event will bring attention and inspire action to address the challenges of meat production and consumption in two ways: by celebrating sustainably raised meat and its producers, and by bringing together a diverse group of delegates, from across the food chain and across the globe, in order to document and generate strategies for activating our large grassroots network.

Join this webinar to learn more about the international Slow Meat campaign and how you can add to the effort to free eaters and producers everywhere from the culture of confinement. Learn more at www.slowfoodusa.org/slow-meat

Larmer will give a 30-minute presentation, followed by a 10 to 15 minute question-and-answer session. Register early, as space is limited.​
