Stories from a Slow Food Nation

For every fast-food franchise in this country, there is a family recipe, heirloom seed, deeply rooted tradition, or responsible business.

We are not a fast-food nation.

We are putting gardens in schools and saving ancient foods from extinction. We are not frozen hamburger patties and super-sized sodas. We are Manoomin wild rice and Tupelo Honey.

We are a Slow Food nation.

About the Project

With stories told by Americans who keep food and farming strong, this collection of videos, narrative, art and more is meant to inspire you to celebrate or create your own food culture. These are stories of everyday people keeping traditions alive in their kitchens and backyards, in their raised beds and local communities – encouraging us to go Slow and spark conversations about the rich diversity that remains in the US, despite the inclinations of the industrial food system.
