Slow Food Pikes Peak has established an education fund in the name of one of our chapter’s founders, Jerald Bridgman. This fund is intended to support educational initiatives to encourage public awareness of food traditions, stewardship of the environment, and responsible care, harvesting, and consumption of plants and animals in the Pikes Peak region while meeting the Slow Food mission of “Good, clean, fair food for all”. Residents of the Pikes Peak Region (Douglas, El Paso, Fremont, Pueblo, and Teller counties) are encouraged to apply for 2019 grants.
