good, clean and fair
The three tenets of Slow Food’s philosophy food and food production:
- GOOD: a fresh and flavorsome seasonal diet that satisfies the senses and is part of our local culture;
- CLEAN: food production and consumption that does not harm the environment, animal welfare or our health;
- FAIR: accessible prices for consumers and fair conditions and pay for small-scale producers.
Sonoma County North was founded in 1997, the first of five Slow Food chapters in Sonoma County. We believe that food is a common language and universal right, and envision a world in which all people can eat food that is good: for them, for the people who grow it, and for the planet.
Our mission is to reconnect those in our community with the people, traditions, plants, animals, fertile soils, and waters that produce our food. We work to inspire a transformation in food policy, production practices, and market forces so that they ensure equity, sustainability, and pleasure in the food we eat.
