We are the local chapter of Slow Food, an international movement dedicated to good, clean, and fair food with over 1,500 chapters in 160 countries. Here in Vermont, we aim to share our many food cultures with each other and the broader Slow Food community. Thanks for your interest and welcome to the table!
Our volunteer board organizes events, gatherings, and educational opportunities throughout the state. In addition, we work with Slow Food USA and Slow Food International to stay connected to goings on around the country and the world.
For Slow Food, the idea of good means enjoying delicious food created with care from healthy plants and animals. The pleasures of good food can also help to build community and celebrate culture and regional diversity.
When we talk about clean food, we are talking about nutritious food that is as good for the planet as it is for our bodies. It is grown and harvested with methods that have a positive impact on our local ecosystems and promotes biodiversity.
We believe that food is a universal right. Food that is fair should be accessible to all, regardless of income, and produced by people who are treated with dignity and justly compensated for their labor.

We are Slow Food
We gather at the table.
We gather on our Green Mountains, our lakes, and our streams.
In our gardens.
By our fields and hearth.
In our corner stores and community kitchens.
In classrooms and cafeterias.
We gather seeds, stories, and songs.
We gather to share experiences and to feed our curiosity.
We celebrate those who have come before, and we seek to know the wisdom of our seasons and soils.
We roll up our sleeves and reacquaint ourselves with the knowledge that comes from our hands.
Together we break bread, and we gather to continue the journey.
We gather as Slow Food Vermont.
