Organizer

Slow Food Detroit

The Slow Food movement was founded in Italy in 1989 as an alternative to the fast food lifestyle. Now there are chapters all over the world. As a local Chapter, Slow Food Detroit is committed to creating dramatic and lasting change in our food system while protecting our planet.

Our commitment to families in the Detroit area stems from our belief in the right for all people to have access to fresh, sustainable and locally produced food and that the producers of our food should be treated with dignity and justly compensated for their labor.  Our mission focuses upon strengthening awareness of the connection between the food on our plates and the health of our planet. We are an all volunteer Board and a member driven organization.  Our members are involved in activities such as:

  • Raising public awareness, improving access and encouraging the enjoyment of foods that are local, seasonal and sustainably grown
  • Caring for the land and protecting biodiversity in Detroit and Metro Detroit communities today, as well as for future generations
  • Creating educational outreach programs within the Detroit and Metro Detroit community educating school children about regional cooking and our rich cultural heritages
  • Advocating for farmers and artisans who grow, produce, market, prepare and serve wholesome food

 

We celebrate our local food traditions and heritages through events such as rural and urban farm tours, wine tastings, brewery and wine dinners, farm to school programs, and nutrition education throughout schools in the Detroit area.
