Slow Food is a global, grassroots movement founded in Italy over thirty years ago. Today, it is present in over 160 countries, with about 150 chapters in the United States. Slow Food inspires individuals and communities to change the world through food that is good, clean and fair for all. 

Seeking dramatic and lasting change in the local food system, Slow Food Denver reconnects the Front Range communities with the people, traditions, plants, animals, fertile soils and waters that produce our food.


We believe that our everyday choices, starting with what we eat and feed others, can contribute to a better future for the generations to come.

Our Vision in Action
