Welcome to Slow Food Phoenix!

Slow Food is a non-profit, eco-gastronomic, membership organization that educates people about how the foods we choose to consume everyday have a large impact on our environment, health and the world we live in. An international organization begun in the early 1980’s with chapters all over the world, our collective philosophy envisions a world in which all people can access and enjoy food that is good for them, good for those who grow it, and good for the planet.

Our approach is based on a concept of food that is defined by three interconnected principles: good, clean and fair for all.

  • GOOD: quality, flavorsome and healthy food
  • CLEAN: production that does not harm the environment
  • FAIR: accessible prices for consumers and fair conditions and pay for producers

Find the full definition in the Slow Food Manifesto for Quality.

At¬†Slow Food we are dedicated to¬†supporting and celebrating the food traditions of the many cultures living in the United States. Here in Phoenix, we’re your local contacts for the national and international organization. Although the name says Phoenix, we serve the entire Valley of the Sun and our membership ranges from Ahwatukee to Anthem and from Apache Junction to Avondale.

“The quest for slowness, which begins as a simple rebellion against the impoverishment of taste in our lives, makes it possible to rediscover taste” – Carlo Petrini, Founder of the Slow Food movement.
