Slow Food Negroni Week Fund

Can we change the world through food and beverage? We believe we can!

Since 2022, Slow Food has served as the official global giving partner of Negroni Week, a fundraising initiative presented by Imbibe and Campari. All funds raised by thousands of bars and restaurants go to networks, individuals and programs that cultivate community, foster equity and justice, and seek a better world for all through food and beverage.

With this partnership, we envision a world where everyone can enjoy food and beverages that are good for them, good for the people who grow and make them, and good for the planet.

Our approach is rooted in Slow Food values, mainly working to:

Empower the development of local food and beverage systems

Develop resilient systems that regenerate the Earth’s precious resources rather than deplete them

Support economies based on solidarity and cooperation that benefit and empower all hospitality workers and consumers

Advance social equity through fair working conditions and inclusivity of all peoples, ethnicities and genders.

2024 Edition

This year, the Slow Food Negroni Week Fund will be distributed in three categories:

Education Scholarship: Thirty individuals will receive full support to attend Tales of the Cocktail (New Orleans, USA in July 2024) or Terra Madre Salone del Gusto (Turin, Italy in September 2024). The goal is to give less experienced and connected professionals an opportunity for training, networking and focused learning on sustainability in the industry. Applicants must be above legal drinking age, currently employed in the beverage industry, and interested in incorporating Slow Food values of “good, clean and fair food and beverage for all” into their work.

Negroni Week Innovation Award: We are looking for innovative and community-based projects that center good, clean and fair values in the beverage industry. Awards of $3000-10,000 USD will be given to partnerships between two or more organizations, with at least one involved in the beverage sector.

Slow Food Exchanges: By invitation only, these grants connect hospitality professionals with producers in specific sectors. Each Exchange includes a field experience, in-depth forum, networking, and a public event.
