About Slow Food

Slow Food is an international movement dedicated to Taste, Tradition, and the Honest Pleasures of Food. Founded in 1986 by Carlo Petrini of Bra, Italy, Slow Food now has 75,000 members in more than 80 countries. In North America, Slow Food activities are overseen by Slow Food USA. Based in New York City, Slow Food USA provides support and promotion to local chapters, each called a "convivium," that carry out the Slow Food mission on a local level. Each convivium advocates sustainability and bio-diversity through educational events and public outreach that promote the appreciation and consumption of seasonal and local foods and the support of those who produce them. For more details, see the Slow Food USA Guiding Principles and Manifesto.
