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.

As the Old Saying Goes...

"You are what you eat." 

If that is the case, would you rather be a genetically-modified hormone-induced beef patty from 1,000 miles away, or a juicy, acorn-fed heritage pork chop from a farm 30 miles away?

Do yourself a favor and take advantage of these last few weeks of summer and slow down before your hectic work lifestyle pulls you back to the excuse we all love to hate - "I'm too busy to cook." Eating sensibly doesn't require as much time and money as one may believe, but it does require a conscious effort and decision to do so.

Let's face it - we're constantly reminded of how fast food is damaging, yet we're trading a healthier body and mind for convenience and ease. Slow Food wants to reintroduce you to the holistic values of food and bring back good, clean and fair food to your table.

Become a member at your local Columbia chapter today!

Break free of the fast food nation and become part of the slow food movement.
