Friends of Slow Food Miami

Our Special Thanks to Ferne Carpousis and Eric Hompe
Slow Food Miami has been privileged to have had the committed leadership of Ferne Carpousis (Convivum Leader and Web Master) and Eric Hompe (Treasurer and Tech Guru) who were co-founders of Slow Food Miami (SFM) In 2002, their film, "Il Bocconcino," was feataured in the first biennial short film festival in Bra, hometown of the international movement, in the Slow Food category of films related to broad cultural issues around food. Shortly after that, they joined Kyra White to found Slow Food Miami. While we are sad that they have left us, they will remain active in the Slow Food movement around their new home in Washington, DC. They leave us the legacy of a thriving South Florida Convivium. Under their leadership, the Miami convivium created the Plant A Thousand Gardens program. introducing school children to Slow Food principles and healthy eating through schoolyard gardens, cooking classes and related curricula. Our thanks to them, too, for broadening the membership base through imaginative press releases and imagery, and for building relationships with the broad community of organizations, academics, and other individuals committed to improving family health in this age of fast food. We wish them well and look forward to their visits, particularly when the snow begins to fall.
