Earlier this year, the Obama administration told Slow Food and other sustainable agriculture advocates to “show us the movement” for good, clean, and fair food. The Labor Day eat-ins were one visible demonstration of the food movement’s growth and now Slow Food USA presents another opportunity:
Join Slow Food USA during September and help sustain the momentum from the Time For Lunch campaign. This month, any first-time donation to Slow Food USA will make you a member. Give more if you can, less if you can’t.
Membership dollars help Slow Food USA work to directly affect national and local food policies. From reauthorization of the Child Nutrition Act to the Farm Bill, Slow Food is building alliances, bringing in key industry experts, and heading to Washington to demand change.
Supporting Slow Food as a member helps us send a louder and stronger message that good, clean, and fair food is a right, not a privilege. Members of Slow Food USA join both the national and international Slow Food networks as well as the Los Angeles chapter. Benefits include:
- Invitations to local, national and international events celebrating good, clean, fair food;
- Member-only discounts on select events and publications;
- Getting connected with your local Slow Food chapter, made up of people who care about food, agriculture, health and the environment; and
- Opportunities throughout the year to take action and have an impact on critical legislation affecting food and agriculture in the U.S.
Membership rates will return to $60 (individual) and $75 (couple) on October 1st, but until then a donation of any amount makes you member. Join Slow Food USA and help us show our elected officials that the movement for good, clean, and fair is growing stronger every day.
