Learn how Slow Food is growing a social movement in the U.S. and around the world to move us toward a food system that is good, clean and fair — and to a society in which food is both a universal right and a pleasure.  The organization, and our local Slow Food Urban San Diego chapter, is working towards a world in which all people can eat food that is good — for them, for the people who grow it, and for the planet.
