Who We Are

Slow Food Gainesville, like Slow Food USA is commited to developing, promoting, and supporting a food system that is good. clean and fair! 


The word good can mean a lot of things to a lot of people. For Slow Food, the idea of good means enjoying delicious food created with care from healthy plants and animals. The pleasures of good food can also help to build community and celebrate culture and regional diversity.


When we talk about clean food, we are talking about nutritious food that is as good for the planet as it is for our bodies. It is grown and harvested with methods that have a positive impact on our local ecosystems and promotes biodiversity.


We believe that food is a universal right. Food that is fair should be accessible to all, regardless of income, and produced by people who are treated with dignity and justly compensated for their labor.

The work of Slow Food to defend biodiversity, build food communities, and foster taste education is made possible through donations and membership dues.
