Join Slow Food USA in September and help support local chapter activities!

For us to get the share, you must sign up at - not the standard membership page on Slow Food USA!

Slow Food Rochester is an all volunteer organization and doesn't receive funds from the national Slow Food. In September, however, we will receive half of all the membership fees to Slow Food USA for newly joining members!
Slow Food Rochester aims to promote a wide range of educational and stimulating events throughout the year, and strives to make all events accessible to all, operating entirely on a donation basis. Especially in this first year of our new operation, we have significant expenses for infrastructure to support our ongoing operations. Your donation now will help us get through this startup time and ensure we can offer a wide range of events all through the year.

Slow Food Rochester strives to offer most events on a donation basis. In addition, to support our farmers and local businesses, we always offer to pay their cost for goods and don't ask for donations outright. With great volunteer help, we can host wonderful events like the farm dinner at truly minimal cost. Help us continue these activities!
