Slow Food Phoenix chapter members range from professional chefs to home cooks who enjoy the philosophy and the food of the Slow Food Movement. We are interested in ensuring that our food is good, clean and fair through the following programs:


  • Educating families about local foods and food traditions including an annual Mesquite Milling event
  • Educating youth through our Slow Food in Schools Projects
  • Preserving Arizona's traditional and heirloom seeds, vegetables and meat through projects such as the Churro Lamb Presidia and the RAFT Local Farmers Seed Grow Out
  • Supporting local farmers and producers through farm tours, special dinners,
    other educational events and donations
  • Encouraging the consumption of local, sustainable, fair and humanely-raised foods
    while celebrating the pleasures of the table.
