Slow Food Lake Tahoe offers Truckee-Tahoe salmon buying club
Slow Food Lake Tahoe is bringing an Alaskan salmon buying club to the Truckee-Tahoe area, giving locals the opportunity to purchase sustainably caught Alaskan sockeye salmon at a significant discount. In return, nonprofit Slow Food Lake Tahoe will receive 5% of the proceeds to help support the future of their local programs including the Food Bank Garden, providing organic produce for Sierra Community House.
Slow Food Lake Tahoe is working directly with Pride of Bristol Bay out of Alaska to bring the community this exciting opportunity to access sockeye salmon with unsurpassed quality and flavor. The Alaska Department of Fish and Game’s Bristol Bay Salmon Management Plan is recognized as one of the most effective and comprehensive management regimes in the world.
