Success with Snooze, An AM Eatery
For the second year in a row, Slow Food Phoenix has been the lucky partner picked by Snooze Restaurants to benefit from their Bacon Day fundraising event held at Snooze Restaurants. On September 2nd this year, at both the Phoenix Town & Country and Kierland locations, Slow Food Phoenix had the opportunity to set up tables loaded with information about our organization and the work we do along with information about upcoming events. The objective was to have good conversations and promote Slow Food Phoenix with Snooze’s guests who were waiting for their tables. We explained that part of the proceeds from their meal will be donated to Slow Food USA of which Slow Food Phoenix is one recipient chapter.
Many conversations took place with the Snooze guests and the common themes of those conversations included sourcing, sustainability, activism, farming in Arizona, bacon, education, and various other topics. We thank Snooze for choosing us as their recipient for Bacon Day. We truly have aligned values! We also appreciate Pamela Hamilton, Ellen Wesley and John Beshears for volunteering their Saturday to staff the Slow Food Phoenix tables. We look forward to the next opportunity to partner with Snooze Restaurants!
