What we do

Slow Food is a global grassroots organization that envisions a world in which all people can access and enjoy food that is good for them, good for those who grow it and good for the planet.
A non-profit member-supported association, Slow Food was founded in 1989 to counter the rise of fast food and fast life, the disappearance of local food traditions and to encourage people to be aware about the food they eat, where it comes from, how it tastes and how our food choices affect the rest of the world.
Slow Food believes that everyone has a fundamental right to the pleasure of quality food and consequently the responsibility to protect the heritage of biodiversity, culture and knowledge that make this pleasure possible.
Slow Food has over 100,000 members joined in 1,500 communities – worldwide, as well as a network of 2,000 Terra Madre food communities who practice small-scale and sustainable production of quality foods. Thanks to its projects and activities, Slow Food involves millions of people in 150 countries.
