If not, that’s o.k. Created in 1986 and known as the alternative to fast food, the slow food movement is currently happening in over 150 countries, and the ideas it upholds are spreading. No more fast food in a nation of sick and dying Americans; no more corporate monopolies and unsustainable farming practices; no GMOs; no food that is completely nutritionally devoid. What began as a group of activists trying to resist the opening of a McDonald’s just steps away from Spanish Steps in Rome ushered a movement – one that is exactly the same as what we’re fighting for today.Fighting for Sustainable Farming Practices, Organic Food
The movement promotes locally grown food, food sovereignty, and centuries old sustainable gastronomy supported by responsible farming and agricultural production. There are now offices in Germany, Switzerland, Italy, France, Japan and even New York City.
