Palm City, FL – David Vaina, Board Member of the Slow Food Movement of the Gold & Treasure Coast, will be presenting How We Eat: A History of Local Food in Martin County on Saturday, April 26 at the Peter & Julie Cummings Library, 2551 SW Matheson Ave, Palm City, at 11am. Attendees are sure to leave with a better understanding of the food that has been grown and cooked in this county, from the food of pioneers who settled throughout Martin County to the local foods of present day.

The Slow Food Movement is a global network of over 150,000 members in more than 150 countries. Through a vast volunteer network of local chapters, youth and food communities, they link the pleasures of the table with a commitment to protect the community, culture, knowledge and environment that make these pleasures possible.

Their mission as an international grassroots membership organization is good, clean and fair food for all.

David Vaina is an active member of the non-profit community of Martin County, having relocated to the area five years ago, after eight years in the Washington, D.C. area. He has been a board member of the Slow Food Movement of the Gold & Treasure Coast since 2013.
