Comfort Foods Potluck

Sunday, Jan. 25, 2pm, Normandy Barn, Indiana State Fairgrounds, 1202 E. 38th St.

What to bring: your favorite comfort food to share, dining ware (plates, bowls, cups, utensils, etc.), drinks

Join fellow Hoosier food fans to beat the winter greys. Bring your favorite comfort food to share and sample the luscious, indulgent dishes of friends old and new. Several local chefs and food producers are eager to share their favorite comfort foods with you at the event. Come hungry. Everyone is welcome!

During the event, Slow Food Indy's delegates to Terra Madre--an international food conference in Torino, Italy--will hold a panel discussion about their experiences in Italy and how the lessons they learned will impact our food culture here in central Indiana. Check out photos from their trip, listen to their first-hand experience representing Indiana to a global audience, and get the chance to ask your own questions about their trip and the future of food in Indiana.

Slow Food Indy will also hold its brief and interesting 2009 Annual Meeting during the event. Everyone is welcome to listen in, but only members of Slow Food USA will get to vote for new chapter board members and bylaws.

Slow Food Indy's board has put together a draft of chapter bylaws, and we're looking for your input. Please contact us at slowfoodindy@gmail.com to receive a copy of the draft bylaws and contact us BEFORE the annual meeting on Jan. 25 (details above) with any suggestions regarding the bylaws. The bylaws will be presented to the membership for a vote of approval during the annual meeting on Jan. 25 (details above). Only members of Slow Food USA who have chosen Slow Food Indy as their local chapter will be eligible to vote on the bylaws during the annual meeting. If you are a member, please attend the annual meeting to cast your vote (and get some tasty comfort food!). If you're not a member, come enjoy the comfort food and Terra Madre presentations and please consider joining to take advantage of all the benefits.

Want to have a hands-on role in promoting central Indiana's food culture? Consider joining the Chapter Board of Slow Food Indy! Elections for three board positions will be held during the annual meeting on Jan. 25 (details above). Board members elected in 2009 must be members of Slow Food USA and will serve three year terms. Board members are responsible for attending regular board meetings and Slow Food Indy events. If "good, clean, and fair" food is important to you and you want to help ensure that everyone in central Indiana has the opportunity to learn about and experience truly slow food, then please consider serving on Slow Food Indy's board.
