Slow Food Whidbey Island

What is Slow Food?

Slow Food is a global, grassroots organization with supporters in 150 countries around the world who are linking the pleasure of good food with a commitment to their community and the environment. Slow Food Whidbey Island is an educational not for profit organization run by an all-volunteer board of directors. In 2010, Slow Food Whidbey Island was founded and officially got it's 501(c)(3) status in 2013. We are supported by members and a network of volunteers who help with planning and executing our events. We are here to share the idea that food is good, clean and fair food for all.

Good - Our food should be tasty, seasonal, local, fresh and wholesome.

Clean - Our food should nourish a healthful lifestyle and be produced in ways that preserve biodiversity, sustain the environment and ensure animal welfare – without harming human health.

Fair - Our food should be affordable by all, while respecting the dignity of labor from field to fork.

For All - Good, clean and fair food should be accessible to all and celebrate the diverse cultures, traditions and nations that reside in the USA.
