“Slow Food USA is part of the global Slow Food network of over 150,000 members in more than 150 countries. Through a vast volunteer network of local chapters, youth and food communities, they link the pleasures of the table with a commitment to protect the community, culture, knowledge and environment that make this pleasure possible.”
Slow Food USA is aiming to add 10,000 members by September 30, 2014.
Locally, they are represented by Slow Food Shasta Cascade Redding Chico, which has an active Facebook Page. The Growing Local Coalition Facebook Group also has information on local events, as does Growing Local and Healthy Shasta.
