What We Do

Slow Food is intent on growing a network of supporters and producers who are aware of the negative impacts of the current food system, and who want to make change.

Everyone is invited to engage at our events or through our local Food Communities and the international Foundation for Biodiversity projects.
It is easy and free to sign up to our manifesto or to join a Food Community.

We work to create a food system based on the principles of environmental sustainability, high quality and taste and social justice. In essence, a food system that is good, clean and fair as aligned to Slow Food International’s ethos.

We seek to move our culture away from the destructive effects of an industrial food system and towards the cultural, social and economic benefits of a sustainable food system, regional food traditions, preserving local biodiversity and connecting with local producers and growers.
