The Southwest Washington chapter of Slow Food USA was founded in 2006 as a Leadership Clark County project.
We reconnect Southwest Washington 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.
Programs:Rescues fresh local produce
that would otherwise go to waste,
connecting this abundance with people in need,
and inspiring others to do the same.
Growing a culture of eating local through marketing and education.
