Benefits of Membership

Members are the heart of the Slow Food Movement. By becoming a member you help us move towards a more delicious and sustainable future as you support and further the growth of local, national and international programs.

When you become a member, your voice will be added to those of more than 18,000 individuals in the USA, and 80,000 worldwide, who are committed to changing the food system for the better. Slow Food is the only organization that celebrates the delicious tastes of our nation, honors the unsung heroes of our tables, and brings together those committed to making a difference in our food system.

Where Do My Membership Dollars Go?

When you join Slow Food USA, make sure to select Slow Food WiSE as your local chapter. 1/3 of your fees then support the local Slow Food WiSE initiatives. Yes, we are a 100% volunteer organization, but we do provide funding to local food related initiatives and have some very small expenses to cover.

Slow Food International uses their percentage to help open new Slow Food offices around the world. There are currently over 800 chapters in 50 countries with seven national offices. With your support, Slow Food continues to establish new offices and chapters, increasing our body of members and strengthening our international community.

Your dues also support development of the movement here in the US. Slow Food USA provides support to existing chapters and networks and all 300+ leaders to share their wealth of knowledge and experience enabling chapters to become even stronger and reach farther into their communities.

Your annual membership is important to keeping Slow Food alive. We thank you for your continued support, contribution, and communal enthusiasm.
