Slow Food  NYC

Slow Food NYC

Slow Food NYC (SFNYC) is the New York City chapter of Slow Food, the international organization dedicated to a food system that is based on the principles of high quality and taste, environmental sustainability, and social justice—in essence, a food system that is good, clean and fair. A non-profit, member-supported organization, Slow Food was founded in 1989 to counteract fast food and fast life; to stand against the disappearance of local food traditions and people's dwindling interest in the food they eat, where it comes from, how it tastes and how our food choices affect the rest of the world. Slow Food seeks to catalyze a broad cultural shift away from the destructive effects of an industrial food system and fast life; toward the regenerative cultural, social and economic benefits of a sustainable food system, regional food traditions, the pleasures of the table, and a slower and more harmonious rhythm of life.

SFNYC supports the mission of Slow Food, working closely with Slow Food USA, the national association headquartered in Brooklyn. SFNYC is entirely organized and run by volunteers, drawing talent, expertise, and ambition from our members and friends around the city. SFNYC supports those who contribute to a good, clean, and fair food system, both for-profit and not-for-profit.
