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.

June 17: Slow Food Happy Hour at Saluda's!

Join us Monday, June 17th from 6pm-7:30pm at the bar at Saluda's in Five Points for a super casual happy hour!

Cash/credit bar for drinks and apps. Let's just hang out.

It's summer, after all!

Join Slow Food now to vote in board elections!

As a 100% volunteer-run non-profit, we are looking forward to growing internal leadership teams, increasing our dues-paying membership, and hosting more small gatherings for our Slow Food Community.

We will be holding elections for new board members soon!

To vote, you MUST be a current, dues paying member of Slow Food USA.

What would *you* like to accomplish as a member of our Slow Food community?

(Have you joined or renewed at Slow Food USA? Go for it!)

Good luck to the Palmetto Tasty Tomato Festival!

While we aren't co-organizing this year, we hope you'll attend July 20!

Slow Food Columbia is trying to focus on internal growth and infrastructure this year, so we're not co-producing the 2013 Palmetto Tasty Tomato Festival. However, we'd like to encourage y'all to attend and support the organization with whom we co-founded the event in 2010, Sustainable Midlands!

Sustainable Midlands has partnered with the Rosewood Merchants' Association for this year's festival. Check it out and give 'em your love!

Yours slowly,
Slow Food Columbia
