Slow Food Urban San Diego is looking to bring "slow food" to Little Italy.

As part of a nationwide campaign, the local Slow Food USA chapter is hosting a Slow Food Challenge to encourage the community to build a lunch from local goods.

Vendors will offer lunch alternatives that cost no more than $5 per person; the typical cost of a fast food “value meal.”

“This is an opportunity for the San Diego urban community to demonstrate together that there is a choice, and that good, clean, and fair food can be affordable and accessible,” said Kristen Goodrich, a board member of Slow Food San Diego.

The event will take place on September 17 from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Little Italy Mercato. For more information, visit the Slow Food Urban San Diego website.
