Slow Food NYC is the New York City chapter of Slow Food, a non-profit, member-supported organization founded in 1989 to counteract the culture of fast food. Slow Food stands against the disappearance of local food traditions and people's dwindling interest in the food they eat, where it comes from, how it tastes and how our food choices affect the rest of the world.

Simply put, we are the members of Slow Food who live in and around New York City. We, the members of Slow Food NYC, designate a steering committee of twelve members to represent us, and to run the chapter's events and affairs. Slow Food NYC is entirely organized and run by volunteers, drawing talent, expertise, and ambition from our members and friends around the city.

SFNYC supports the mission of Slow Food, working closely with Slow Food USA, the national association headquartered in Brooklyn.

Mission Statement

Slow Food NYC works to create a food system based on the principles of high quality and taste, environmental sustainability, and social justice — in essence, a food system that is good, clean and fair. We seek to move our culture away from the destructive effects of an industrial food system and towards the cultural, social and economic benefits of a sustainable food system, regional food traditions, and the pleasures of the table.

What We Do

We support those who contribute to a good, clean, and fair food system, both for-profit and not-for-profit. We do this through several means:
