Why would I join Slow Food?

The Slow Food movement is a reaction to a fast food lifestyle predominant in many modern cultures.
By choosing to become a part of the Slow Food movement, you are making a choice to be a co-producer rather than a consumer; an active, proactive and informed part of the food chain.

Your support is extremely important to our success. If you aren't currently a member of Slow Food, please join or renew your membership and join us in speaking up for a more sustainable future. Please visit Slow Food website

Benefits of being a member:

  • Discounts to Slow Food events

  • A personal membership card usable anywhere in the world

  • Four issues of the international magazine Slow Food Almanac

  • Four issues of the newsletter The Snail

  • The right to attend all events organized by the Slow Food movement around the world

  • Discounts on all Slow Food publications and merchandise
When you join Slow Food, your funds directly contribute to our movement to change the world. Your helping hand makes an enormous difference as we reach across cultures, continents and out to new people to educate the world about the Slow life.

Our economic crisis, our healthcare crisis, our environmental crisis, and our children’s health and education cannot be addressed without addressing the food we eat and the way it is produced.

Help us spread the word in Cincinnati!

Welcome to Slow Food Cincinnati!

Slow Food Cincinnati has hosted our first event – a free to the public maple syrup tour and tasting – and has several more being planned. Our focus at this time is on membership and we will begin to be seen more around town at local food gatherings. Please come up and meet us. Our goal is to offer our upcoming programs with a reduced or free admission to members only – just as a way of thanking people for becoming part of our group. I hear secrets to bread baking may be unlocked in April!

We have organized around a small board, but are always looking for more people who want to become involved. It is the perfect time to get in on the ground floor with Slow Food Cincinnati. Our next meeting is in early April – for volunteers -- and we’d love to have your support. There are many, many wonderful food projects we would like to get involved with and support as we have more people to participate. In addition, we are always willing to learn more about the projects you would like to champion as part of our group.
