The Slow Food movement was founded in Italy in 1989 as a reaction to the increase of fast food and fast life and to encourage interest in the origins of food, preservation of local food culture and the connection between what we eat and the world at large.
“Slow Food unites the pleasure of food with responsibility, sustainability and harmony with nature.”- Carlo Petrini, Slow Food founder and President
Slow Food consists of over 1,300 convivia (local chapters) that champion farmers markets, food education and school kitchen gardens, whilst supporting local producers and much, much more.
Slow Food Brisbane is still growing! We hold monthly meetings with guest speakers who share their knowledge over a meal as well as excursions to various producers in the greater Brisbane surrounds.
