Harvest Disco Soup
Sunday, Sept. 27
4 to 6 p.m.
Paonia Town Park

Join Slow Food Western Slope for a Disco Soup seasonal spread. This spread will be prepared with fresh ingredients, sourced from local farms that would have otherwise gone to waste. With this Disco Soup, Slow Food Western Slope aims to create conviviality around food and to raise awareness of the unimaginable quantities of food that go to waste every day. We will do this by providing you with a delicious solution for wasted food! Soup will be $5 a bowl, and proceeds benefit Slow Food. Join us at the pavilion near the playground for a special meal during this harvest season!
