About

Slow Food Mother City is a local convivium (chapter) of the international Slow Food movement.

Slow Food celebrates, protects and promotes foods that are good, clean and fair.

Good food is delicious, natural and part of our cultural heritage.
Clean food is grown sustainably, in an environmentally responsible manner.
Fair food is produced by farmers and artisans who have food sovereignty: they are free to choose how, when, where and what food they produce, and are properly remunerated and respected for their work.

We achieve this by:

  • Safeguarding local and indigenous dishes, made according to traditional methods
  • Giving preference to foods that are grown and produced sustainably, by small farmers and producers, using traditional skills and methods
  • Regarding meal times as an opportunity to celebrate our relationships and cultures
  • Believing the enjoyment of food is a right of all people

We offer monthly activities to promote these values. These events include meals, tastings, farm outings and producer visits.

Slow Food Mother City is run by a committee of elected volunteers. Guests are also welcome to attend our events.
