Slow Food Potluck - McKwen Hall, Hamilton College You have no idea how great food & conversation can be until you experience a community-wide Slow Food Potluck meal . . .
The newly formed Slow Food Hamilton College campus chapter will be joining us this round. Potlucks are a do-not-miss event open to everyone.  Bring a dish to share along with your plate, utensils and something to drink . . .  we'll be sharing our ideas of Slow Food Mohawk Valley initiatives and want to hear what you wish to see happen. If it's not happening, it's because you're not doing it:  plug in, plant some seeds and see what grows!
