Slow Food is an idea, a way of living and a way of eating.

It is part of a global, grassroots movement with thousands of members in over 150 countries, which links the pleasure of food with a commitment to community and the environment.

About

Slow Food NYC is the New York City chapter of Slow Food, a non-profit, member-supported organization founded in 1989 to counteract the culture of fast food. Slow Food stands 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.

Simply put, we are the members of Slow Food who live in and around New York City. We, the members of Slow Food NYC, designate a steering committee of twelve members to represent us, and to run the chapter's events and affairs. Slow Food NYC is entirely organized and run by volunteers, drawing talent, expertise, and ambition from our members and friends around the city.

SFNYC supports the mission of Slow Food, working closely with Slow Food USA, the national association headquartered in Brooklyn.

Join and Volunteer

We are a completely volunteer run organization--so nothing gets done without the support of people just like you! Volunteers work street fairs, concerts and fundraisers; plant our farms; paint murals and fences; and offer educational programs for adults. We've had volunteers who have been elected to the board by the membership and who now chair committees, manage events, raise money and make sure we keep on mission.
