Our Global Movement

Slow Food rallies everyone in the fight for better, cleaner and fairer food: from activists and local groups to partner organizations and institutions.

Diversity is what defines us, and our movement is open to everyone. Local member groups have been the backbone of our movement since its foundation in 1986. But as our movement has expanded, so has its structure diversified.

Whether you want to connect with Slow Food activists in your area, join a community engaged in revolutionizing the food system, or work with people around the world to preserve and promote food heritage, our global movement offers many ways for you to get involved.
