What Is Slow Food

Slow Food is a global, grassroots movement formed to link the pleasure of food with a commitment to creating and sustaining a healthy community and environment.

We believe every person has the right to healthy food that is good for our bodies and good for the planet.

We believe that the farmers and artisans who grow, produce, market and prepare our foods are entitled to be treated with dignity and justly compensated for their efforts.

We believe in caring for the land and protecting biodiversity for this and future generations.

We believe in performing educational outreach programs in our community to raise public awareness and educate children in schools about the importance of good, clean fair food.

We believe in encouraging the enjoyment of foods that are local, seasonal and sustainably grown.
