GOOD Magazine Block Party:Support Slow Food Nation

Slow Food and GOOD Magazine—“the magazine that gives a damn”—have embarked on a partnership to connect and enhance community among progressive, proactive people working for a better world. This post is an invitation on two fronts: we’re inviting you to subscribe to GOOD magazine and select Slow Food as the non-profit you’d like to receive 100% of your $20 subscription fee AND, if you do so, we’re inviting you to a big, great BLOCK PARTY at 111 Minna Gallery in San Francisco on Sunday, July 20 to eat, drink, and celebrate all things GOOD.

To be clear, when you subscribe to GOOD Magazine, you get:

(1) One year of GOOD Magazine (Nominated for two National Magazine Awards in its first year)
(2) Entry to all GOOD parties & free drinks (You’re just in time for the huge party next Sunday!)
(3) Plus, GOOD gives 100% of your $20 to Slow Food! (It’s like making a donation and getting great stuff at the same time.)

To RSVP (you can subscribe and RSVP at the same time) go to: www.goodmagazine.com/events/sf08

We’ll bring the news to you.

Get the weekly Civil Eats newsletter, delivered to your inbox.

Added bonus! Slow Food Berkeley is hosting a food and information concession at the Block Party, selling a plate of local summer tomatoes, cheese and stone fruit, all sourced from vendors at the Slow Food Nation Market. The stand will also have materials to help Bay Area residents eating locally in their communities.
