Convening biannually in Italy, Terra Madre is a social food gathering of world food communities to come under one hub. The event will be attended by three delegates specializing in the food industry. Kathy Gunst, Spencer Montgomery, and Amanda Parks are likely to share their experiences at the event. They will inspire others to help save endangered foods. 

In addition, Chef Matt Louis and his entire kitchen crew with utmost expertise in cooking and preparing tastings of local vegetables, seafood, and beverages will be there too. 

The event’s evenfall will focus on the preparations from Slow Food USA’s Ark of Taste agenda to involving the process of nominating and evaluating the traditional forms of foods. This process would include seafood, Abenaki flint corn, harvests from heirloom plants, heritage breeds of animals, and a variety of vegetables. It would eventually include the boarding onto the Ark too. 

Ark foods follow the motto ‘Eat it to Save it.’ This way, farmers are encouraged to produce more in turn saving endangered species. Several presentations at the dinner shall investigate and focus on the model whether things will work for fisheries as it does for agricultural products.
