Every child deserves to grow up knowing where food comes from, how to grow, cook and share it, and how to be healthy.
Slow Food USA local chapters, members and volunteers build and maintain school gardens, lead cooking classes and work to improve school lunches.
We believe that by doing so, we can grow a generation of kids who love and care about food. And by becoming informed eaters and food lovers, they will help make a positive impact on the larger world of food and farming well into the future.
