SKAGIT RIVER SALISH SEA CHAPTER


Slow Food is an educational organization that supports sustainable agriculture, local food production, heritage foods and the pleasures of the table. We promote good, clean, fair food for everyone.


Slow Food Skagit River Salish Sea was formed by a small group of friends who felt that the time had come to bring this international organization home to our community. In our application to Slow Food USA, we wrote, "We are so lucky. We have rich, fertile land and sea. We have historical, local food traditions, from Natives, immigrants and settlers. We have Slow Food minded food producers and educated food consumers. And, we have a population comfortable with the pace and seasons of life. Slow Food belongs here."


"Slow Food links pleasure and food with awareness and responsibility."
