About Us

We are a dynamic chapter of Slow Food USA, fortunate to be in an area where Slow Food principles are lived by our neighbors: farms, dairies, wineries, cheesemakers, artisanal food producers, fishers, beekeepers, and so on.
Take a look at the links on this page and if you feel the way we do about good, clean and fair food, what you see will inform, entice, and delight you.

A volunteer Board of Directors works to facilitate the activities of the Slow Food East End Chapter—but those activities can happen only with the help of volunteers. Being a member of Slow Food means eating and shopping locally, in season and sustainably. It also means showing others how they can link the pleasures of food with community and environment. Won’t you consider becoming a new member or renew your membership in Slow Food? Or go even further and consider volunteering?  We’d be delighted to hear from you. (You’ll find appropriate links to the side or above.)  Join us! Thank you!
