Welcome to Slow Food Huntington, the Huntington chapter of Slow Food USA. Our chapter encompasses Western Suffolk and Nassau counties.
Slow Food is a member-supported, non-profit organization devoted to creating a more sustainable and nourishing Food System. We envision a world where Good, Clean and Fair food is a reality for everyone.
For Slow Food, the idea of Good means enjoying delicious food created with care from healthy plants and animals. The pleasures of good food can also help to build community and celebrate culture and regional diversity.
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.
We believe that food is a universal right. 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.
This change that we seek to inspire includes a transformation in food policy, production practices and market forces, to ensure equity, sustainability, quality and pleasure in the food we eat.
