Slow Food


Slow Food is an idea, a way of living and a way of eating. It is a global, grassroots movement with thousands of members around the world in over 150 countries, which links the pleasure of food with a commitment to community and the environment. Members of Slow Food USA celebrate the amazing bounty of food that is available and work to strengthen the connection between the food on our plates and the health of our planet. Our members are involved in activities such as:

Raise public awareness, improving access and encouraging the enjoyment of foods that are local, seasonal and sustainably grown

Care for the land and protecting biodiversity for today’s communities and future generations

Perform educational outreach within their communities and working with children in schools and through public programs

Identify, promoting and protecting fruits, vegetables, grains, animal breeds, wild foods and cooking traditions at risk of disappearance

Advocate for farmers and artisans who grow, produce, market, prepare and serve wholesome food

Promote the celebration of food as a cornerstone of pleasure, culture and community
