Who We Are
Slow Food is a global, grassroots organization that was born in Italy in 1989 to counter the rise of fast food and the disappearance of local food cultures. Today, we coordinate local, national, and global programs and campaigns to pursue our vision of a world where everyone can enjoy food that’s good for us, good for the environment, and good for those who grow, harvest and prepare it. Slow Food is active in over 160 countries around the world. The U.S. branch, Slow Food USA, is a national nonprofit with headquarters in Brooklyn, NY and over 150 chapters nationwide. Slow Food USA is an equal opportunity employer. We strive to reflect the diverse community that works toward and cares about a healthy food system. Applicants who contribute to this diversity are strongly encouraged to apply.
