Slow Food USA

"Slow Food USA is fighting the good fight. For all that the organization categorizes as "good"-the pleasures of eating delicious food, and the traditions of its cultivation and cooking preserved and thriving-commercial industry presents considerable opposition. Fast-food restaurants, packaged convenience foods, and industrial food manufacturing processes pervade America and other westernized countries. In the name of convenience, they threaten both our health and our heritage. Slow Food USA reminds us that enjoying a quality, meaningful, sustainable life includes appreciating food and the pleasantries surrounding its enjoyment."

"We believe that you can't be fully healthy in an unhealthy environment. The health and well-being of adults and children in our country is of vital concern, and we are proud to be a sponsor of Slow Foods USA. Awareness of how nutritious foods arrive at the table can be an important enticement away from the many fast and unhealthy substances being marketed as foods today. Slow Food USA provides an enjoyable and communal way to promote sustainable farming practices and incorporate them into culinary creations. Slowing down certain things in our lives-like eating food-can be a positive step toward a more balanced and happier life."
