  Slow Food $5 Challenge  Food52 Potluck in NYC

In a country where too many people live in communities where it's harder to buy fruit than Froot Loops, it's time we take back the value meal.


And so, Slow Food USA is leading the charge with a call to eager cooks, eaters, and producers to take The $5 Challenge and dine for $5 or less on September 17th.

You can host a meal where everyone is fed for five bucks a head, or find one near you to attend. Either way, we at Food52 encourage you to register your potluck with Slow Food, the brains behind this movement.

Real food does not have to be expensive. Time to show the world this whole local, sustainable, let's-change-our-food-systems-and-the-way-we-eat thing can be done! We can't wait to see you pull it off, so send your potluck photos to [email protected], if you like, and we'll feature some of the highlights on the site.

Need menu inspiration? Well, here's a perfect place to start: the entries to our recent contest for Your Best Dirt Cheap Dinner!
