Slow Food Outreach Center, Sustainability Library and Kitchen Exchange Open! · 1269 days ago

The Slow Food board is a diverse group who can consult on many aspects of local food production, distribution, composting, and restaurant management. “My dream is that someone comes in the door with a dream who needs help, and we can give them some resources and advice to get their project off the ground,” says Muncaster.

A full, searchable list of resources available at the Outreach Center can be found at www.librarything.com/profile/tetonslowfood where the collection can be viewed or searched by tags, complete with ratings. Donations or loans to the library and kitchen exchange are welcome as long as they fit our categories.
