What is Slow Food?

The aim of the international Slow Food movement is to protect the pleasures of the table from the modern homongenization of fast food and fast life. Through a variety of initiatives Slow Food promotes gastronomic culture, taste education, conserves agricultural biodiversity and protects traditional foods at risk of extinction. The movement began in 1986 with a protest of the first opening of McDonalds on the Spanish Stairs in Rome. Today it is 80,000 members strong representing over 100 countries.

Slow Food members are organized into local chapters or “convivia” and work at the grassroots level to carry out the Slow Food mission at the local, national and international level. Slow Food USA oversees the activities of over 140 convivia in North America. Check out to find a convivia near you. Join Today!
