Food Day is a nationwide celebration of healthy, affordable, and sustainably produced food. The 100 Mile Meal is the culminating event for Salt Lake City’s celebration of Food Day.
Did you know the average meal in the United States travels 1,500 miles from the farm-gate to your plate? The 100 Mile Meal is an opportunity for Salt Lake City to celebrate its local food, farms, and economy, while illustrating a commitment to sustainable agriculture.
The meal will highlight seasonal ingredients sourced from farms within 100 miles of Mayor Becker’s Salt Lake office. The rest of the evening with feature the national premier of Green Living Project’s film short about the New Roots Refugee Agriculture Program, and speeches by the filmmaker and Mayors of Salt Lake County and Salt Lake City.
Proceeds from the 100 Mile Meal will benefit Slow Food Utah’s Micro-Grant Program, which supports local food-related projects, especially small-scale food growers and producers, community innovators, and educators.
