Slow Food Seattle Co-sponsors the Buy Local Campaign KPLU 88.5 National Public Radio

Slow Food Seattle cordially invites members to write and submit story ideas, personal anecdotes, food-related content and full articles on behalf of our local chapter. Chosen submissions will be included on the KPLU Buy Local website.

In regards to content – Slow Food Seattle would like to use this platform to educate the public using our local and national mission as a guide for all submissions (see below). Otherwise, writers have free rein.  Ideas may include:

  • Local, good, clean and fair food/beverage production

  • Profiles of food personalities, entrepreneurs or features on like-minded non-profit groups that demonstrate Slow and Local by example

  • Local manifestations of Slow Food USA programs

  • Local food values or rights work

All submissions will be subject to review – as long as it stays within the guidelines of public radio – no calls to action, or use of comparative words such as largest, best, oldest if it sounds like something heard on a commercial station –it probably doesn’t belong on a public radio station.

Slow Food Seattle is the first organization that has offered to contribute regular content for KPLU so we’re open to ideas on how we can optimize our participation to help educate and inspire our local community about good, clean and fair food for all.

Please direct questions and submit ideas directly to co-chair Lucy Norris at  This is a purely volunteer assignment.  No compensation is being offered for this effort but this is a fine opportunity for members to share their voices and represent Slow Food at the same time.

Thanks in advance! We are excited to engage our members to strengthen the local food community in this way. So far we've submitted articles ranging from Community Supported Agriculture to Washington's sustainable seafood.For more information:
