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 more than 150 countries, which links the pleasure of food with a commitment to community and the environment.
Our commitment to the Tampa Bay Chapter of Slow Food USA is to growing, sharing and eating good, clean, fair food. We believe in eating food that tastes good and that is produced in a clean sustainable way. Food production shouldn't harm the environment or promote cruelty to animals, and should be good for our health. Quality and diverse food should be accessible in our community, and food producers should be acknowledged and given fair compensation for their efforts and hard work.
We will work to reawaken and train the senses of people in our community to rediscover and continue to discover the joys of eating and cooking. We believe it is critical to fully understand the importance where our food comes from and who makes/grows/raises it.
We do not require membership to participate in the majority of our events and we welcome your enthusiasm! We also consistently seek new committed board members. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested in working toward clean, fair food in Tampa Bay.
