Slow Food USA is part of the global grassroots Slow Food
organization founded in 1989 to counter the rise of fast food, the disappearance of local food traditions and people’s dwindling interest in the food they eat, where it comes from, and how our food choices affect the rest of the world. Through local community projects, educational events and campaigns, Slow Food USA volunteers are promoting environmentally friendly food production, teaching children how to grow and prepare their food, and working to make real food accessible to all.
Today, Slow Food has supporters are in over 150 countries around the world. For more information, visit http://www.slowfood.com
