What is Slow Food

Supporting Ethical Food

Slow Food is an idea, a way of living and a way of eating. It is a global, grassroots movement with thousands of members around the world that links the pleasure of food with a commitment to community and the environment.

Our Vision

Food is a common language and has the power to bring people together. Slow Food Saratoga not only envisions a world in which all people have food that is good for them and the planet, but also aims to unite our community through the local food and growers that sustain us.
