Welcome to Slow Food Sonoma Valley


Who are we?

Slow Food Sonoma Valley is one of 225 Slow Food USA chapters which in turn are part of a global, grassroots organization aimed at connecting the pleasure of food with a commitment to community and the environment. Founded in 1989 as a reaction to the rise of fast food and fast life, the Slow Food movement now has more than 100,000 members in 1,300 chapters worldwide. Learn more...
