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 $30 or more makes you a member, and 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 email@example.com.
A Slow Food “snail” is awarded to purveyors of good, clean, fair foods. For Slow Food, the idea of good means enjoying delicious food created with care from healthy plants and animals. 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. 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. If you are an establishment and you believe that you merit our “snail” designation, we encourage you to fill out our survey at: http://slowfoodoahu.limequery.com/index.php/595616/lang-en This survey has been developed and tailored through extensive research and discussion to fit Hawaii’s unique food environment, while also ensuring strict adherence to the GOOD, CLEAN, FAIR philosophy that Slow Food embodies.
