Slow Food Indy is the central Indiana chapter of Slow Food USA which is one of the 132 countries that make up Slow Food International.

Slow Food Indy promotes central Indiana’s food culture with events and volunteer opportunities that focus on good, clean, and fair food for everyone.

Good Food
Good can mean many things, but for Slow Food it is the idea of enjoying great food created from healthy plants and animals. When we enjoy good food, we build a community and celebrate culture and regional diversity.

Clean Food
Clean food refers to the methods in which food reaches our tables. Slow Food believes it should be grown and harvested using methods that positively impact our ecosystems and promotes biodiversity.

Fair Food
We aren’t talking about the corn or the elephant ears you get at the County Fair. We are talking about food that is accessible to everyone no matter the income. We are talking about food produced by those treated with dignity and rightly compensated for their labor.
