Why Join? 

When you become a member of Slow Food USA, you are not simply paying for a subscription to our publications, or for a membership card; your dollars go to further the goals and initiatives of Slow Food locally, nationally and internationally. Through this exchange, our members can be personally involved in furthering the goals we all share.

Members are the heart of the Slow Food Movement. By becoming a member you help us move toward a more delicious and sustainable future as you support and further the growth of local, national and international programs.

When you become a member, your voice will be added to those of more than 18,000 individuals in the USA, and 80,000 worldwide, who are committed to changing the food system for the better. Slow Food is the only organization that celebrates the delicious tastes of our nation, honors the unsung heroes of our tables, and brings together those committed to making a difference in our food system.
 
Slow Food International uses their percentage to help open new Slow Food offices around the world. There are currently over 800 chapters in 50 countries with seven national offices. With your support, Slow Food continues to establish new offices and chapters, increasing our body of members and strengthening our international community.
 
Your dues also support development of the movement here in the US, including the development of new chapters. On average 40 chapters open each year, and that number is growing! Slow Food USA provides support to existing chapters and networks all 300+ leaders to share their wealth of knowledge and experience enabling chapters to become even stronger and reach farther into their communities.
 
The rest of your dues go towards publications, operating expenses, and membership services, all of which help our movement grow and function while keeping our members updated and connected. Membership dues provide only a fraction of the general operating needs to support such programs as Communications and Outreach, Terra Madre, Slow Food In Schools, Slow Food On Campus, RAFT, Ark & Presidia, subsidized student rates, and our participation at Slow Food Nation.
 
Your annual membership is important to keeping Slow Food alive. We thank you for your continued support, contribution, and communal enthusiasm.
