Food for Change Meal

Raise Your Fork to Eat Food for Change!

Every year on December 10th, thousands of people around the world celebrate Terra Madre Day by gathering 'round good, clean and fair food. This year, we are focusing on Food for Change, showcasing how food is a delicious solution to climate change. Our everyday food choices have a huge impact on the planet. It's time to cook up a better future!

A healthy planet doesn't have to mean boring food. We are partnering with Camellia Beans and Meatless Monday to highlight delicious plant-forward dishes.

Will you join us? Here's how:


  1. Choose your bean. Camellia Beans are a New Orleans favorite and aligned with Slow Food. You can find Camellia in select stores, on their website, or on Amazon.
  2. Create a vegetarian dish with the beans and submit your recipe here.
