Slow Food Oberlin is an on campus chapter of the international Slow Food movement working to change the Oberlin community’s relationship with food. We advocate for Good, Clean, and Fair food by educating, engaging and empowering college and community members. We believe in building connections and appreciation for the pleasure of eating through sharing food and knowledge.
But what is Slow Food?
Slow Food is an international eco-gastronomic movement with more than 100,000 members around the world. After starting in Italy in the 1980s, it has brought the fight for Good, Clean and Fair food all around the world by focusing on three areas:
- Supporting small, traditional producers
- Taste education
Slow Food takes great pride in advocating pleasure in eating while also acknowledging the political aspect of eating.
