Welcome to our Slow Food O’ahu website.

As a chapter of Slow Food USA, we support national and international efforts on behalf of sustainable agriculture and rediscovery of the pleasures of the table.

Slow Food USA seeks to create dramatic and lasting change in the food system. We reconnect Americans with the people, traditions, plants, animals, fertile soils and waters that produce our food. We inspire a transformation in food policy, production practices and market forces so that they ensure equity, sustainability and pleasure in the food we eat.

Slow Food O‘ahu events are open to anyone interested. Registration priority is given to Slow Food members and, on occasion, a few events may be limited to members only. Check event listings for more information.

To join us, join the national group at www.slowfoodusa.org. A donation of $60 gives you access to special member-only offers.

When you sign up, you will be asked which “Convivium” you want to join – select “O‘ahu Convivium” and you’re on board for a variety of wonderful events.

If you would like to receive our newsletter, please email slowfoodoahu@yahoo.com.

Applications Open for Terra Madre in Turin, Italy

2018 is a Terra Madre year and your local chapter of Slow Food O’ahu will be funding an Oahu delegation to Italy in September 2018.  The dates of Terra Madre are September 20 -24 in Turin, Italy and occurs in conjunction with Salone Del Gusto, the exhibition of foods. For information on the event, go to http://salonedelgusto.com/en/
This year, we are formalizing the process of how we select and sponsor delegates to whom we offer financial support as well as opening up the application process to a broader community of qualified O’ahu farmers, food producers, ranchers and fishers. We are not sure yet how many Hawaii delegates will be provided for by the Italian Slow Food organization. Those chosen by the international group are provided with housing and meals once they arrive in Italy.  If you think you are interested and need travel support (Slow Food O’ahu provides 80% of the fare to Turin) please review our application and submit it by May 15, 2018 to our Slow Food O’ahu board. Instructions on sending in the application form are located on the form.
