A Little About Us
Slow Food Okanogan has been working over the last several years to promote awareness of the richness and variety of locally produced food available to Okanogan residents and to support and promote local producers. An annual feast of all-local fare has been served in locations up and down the valley. Dinner-and-movie night brought people both the delight of an all locally produced winter meal and increased awareness of local food security issues.

Slow Food Okanogan supports two school garden programs and has an interest in a mobile poultry processing unit. Wine-and-Cheese events are held to further inform while providing fun with local cheese, bread, wine and music and promoting
Slow Food Okanogan is part of a global movement, which believes everyone has the right to good, clean and fair food. It is an idea, a way of living and a way of eating. Although international in scope, Slow Food is entirely grassroots and works to link the pleasure of food with a commitment to community and the environment.

The
Slow Food vision is "Food is a common language and a universal right. Slow Food USA envisions a world in which all people can eat food that is good for them, good for the people who grow it and good for the planet." This vision is pursued by:

• Identifying, promoting and protecting fruits, vegetables, grains, animal breeds, wild foods and cooking traditions
•at risk of disappearance

• Promoting the celebration of food as a cornerstone of pleasure, culture and community
• Raising public awareness, improving access and encouraging the enjoyment of foods that are local, seasonal and sustainably grown

• Caring for the land and protecting biodiversity for today's communities and future generations
