Who earns the next “Snail of Approval”? Learn at Slow Food Sacramento’s annual Harvest Dinner on Nov. 8 at Mulvaney’s B&L.

Tickets ($75; $65 Slow Food members) are on sale now for this popular fund-raiser that supports Slow Food Sacramento’s local programs such as school gardens and promotion of urban agriculture. Past Harvest Dinners sold out quickly.

Highlighting the dinner will be the presentation of Slow Food’s 2015 Snail of Approval Awards to more than a dozen local businesses for their support of Slow Food’s mission: “Good, clean, fair food for all.”

Chef Patrick Mulvaney plans a special seasonal dinner, sourced from local farms and producers, organizers say. The menu will be released closer to the November dinner.

Located in midtown Sacramento, Mulvaney’s B&L is one of 28 local restaurants that have received Snail of Approval awards for exemplifying Slow Food’s ideals including commitment to sustainable and local agriculture.

In addition, several businesses – including Bariani Olive Oil , Produce Express and others – have been recognized by Slow Food for their efforts as producers and supporters. Find the list of past Snail of Approval winners at www.slowfoodsacramento.com.
