My cousin Monika has an amazing job in development for Slow Food USA. It’s a New York–based organization that works to promote education and awareness for the environmental, social, and personal benefits of knowing what’s on your plate. You can read her book review for the Locavore Way at their blog. And you should check out the rest of their website. They have chapters in several cities across the country, and you just might luck out and happen to live in one.
