Slow Food invites the world to eat local on Terra Madre Day, a global celebration, December 10, 2010.
The organizers share that "in 2009 the very first Terra Madre Day organized by Slow Food saw more than 1,000 events take place across 120 countries in one of the largest collective occasions celebrating food diversity and the right to good, clean and fair food ever achieved on a global scale."

On its second edition Terra Madre Day will use the opportunity to raise funds for A Thousand Gardens in Africa project.
