Slow Food chapters form the foundation of conviviality and provide the grassroots fuel for the movement. More than 225 chapters all over the U.S. – and 1,300 around the world – invite members to taste, celebrate, and champion the foods and food traditions important to their communities. Chapters are led by volunteer leaders, and each chapter is distinct in its approach and local initiatives.Visit Local Chapters for more information and to find the local chapter nearest to you.
The Slow Food USA Regional Governors are a team of 19 former chapter leaders who work to build up Slow Food’s presence in a geographic region, primarily by supporting the region’s chapter leaders. A region is typically made up of ten or more chapters in a geographic area, and governors serve a 4-year term. Read their bios here.
