Forget Fast Food, Let’s Think Slow Food

The Slow Food movement promotes traditional and regional cuisine, and encourages farmers to use methods that grow and raise the best plants and livestock that are meant to be produced in the region in which you live. In a world where faster is often mistaken as better, the Slow Food movement is encouraging for artisan producers and chefs who respect the food they prepare.

Locally, Slow Food NYC follows international Slow Foods standards by supporting individuals, producers, and restaurants that contribute to a good, clean, and fair food system in the city. Through the Snail of Approval program, SFNYC awards producers, purveyors, and artisans who successfully provide quality, authentic, and sustainable food and beverages to the City of New York.
