What Do We Do?
Slow Food is a global, grassroots organization with more than 150,000 members and 2,000 food communities throughout 150+ countries.
Slow Food USA, a national association of Slow Food, has 175 local and campus chapters that coordinate local activities, projects and events.
We work with and cultivate local leaders who also model joy and champion local, culturally significant heritage foods, customs and recipes – we bring these experiences into farms, markets, restaurants and homes. We teach the next generation how to grow, prepare and share food responsibly!
We preserve and share local foods and food cultures through tastings, potlucks, field trips and classes – we celebrate the Slow life!
Conviviality is central to our mission. We are a global community, connecting people to the land and to each other through local projects, educational events, and shared meals. We become catalysts for change by sharing the joy of Slow Food and prioritizing wholesome living over convenience.
