“Not Fast Food!”— Slow Food Seacoast Sunday Dinner
Place: Stoodley’s Tavern, Strawbery Banke Museum, Portsmouth, NH
Date: Sunday, February 6
Time: 5:30–7:30 Potluck Dinner
Slow Food Seacoast invites you to attend the next community “Sunday Dinner” of the new year on Sunday, February 6, at 5:30 pm in Portsmouth. The theme, Not Fast Food!, challenges attendees to rework a common fast food dish the “slow” way, with good, clean, and fair food. Try to remake a common fast food dish the slow way, or prepare a dish the way that it might have been prepared before fast food made it ubiquitous. Burgers and fries are a starting point … be creative, and please try to include at least one local ingredient in your dish!
The dinner theme stems from the topic of the guest speaker, Sriram Madhusoodanan, Portsmouth Organizer for Corporate Accountability International, a nonprofit organization that protects public health by waging and winning campaigns against the corporate abuse of food systems worldwide. Sriram will give us a broad overview of corporate influence on our food system and share examples of efforts to reverse this trend, in the Seacoast and elsewhere. More specifically, Sriram will speak about Corporate Accountability International’s Value [the] Meal campaign, which is dedicated to reversing the global epidemic of diet-related disease by challenging the fast food industry to curb its marketing of unhealthy food to children. Foremost, the organization is calling on fast-food giant McDonald’s to Retire Ronald [McDonald] once and for all.
