Revolution at a Snail's Pace: How the Slow Food Movement Is Tackling Our Biggest Food Problems

At Youth Food's final meeting Petrini told the group, "...food and food culture [has] become an expression of power...[has] become a rediscovery of people's relationship with the landscape ... We're not just talking about food and agriculture, we're talking about spirituality."
The excitement generated, the information exchanged, and the networking that transpired at Terra Madre all conspired to invigorate a community that's driven to create real change. The snail may be the Slow Food mascot, but I left Terra Madre believing that what happened there will expedite the pace of real change in the food systems of the world.
