Hello fellow slow foodies - If you live in or around the greater Columbia area, and are concerned about sustainable agriculture, biodiversity, food education, supporting local farmers and being able to get more local produce and game, then we are the group for you. We officially formed the Slow Food Columbia convivium at the end of 2007 and have hosted one event, a turkey tasting, thus far. We have ideas for some new events in the works, but we'd love your help to put these ideas into action. Please refer to the links at the right to become a member of Slow Food and to contact us, the local convivium, for more information.
Slow Food Columbia convivium leader
Slow Food Columbia is one of 200+ Slow Food USA chapters, located in Columbia, South Carolina. Our mission is to support the movement behind GOOD, CLEAN and FAIR foodways in the Midlands and beyond. Our convivium hosts workshops, potlucks and other events throughout the year to celebrate local + seasonal flavors; to showcase the culinary talents of our region's chefs, farmers, + artisan producers; to strengthen connections between members of our local food community; and to educate the public about the importance of knowing where your food comes from.
