Short description

Slow Food is a global, grassroots organization, founded in 1989 to prevent the disappearance of local food cultures and traditions, counteract the rise of fast life and combat people’s dwindling interest in the food they eat, where it comes from and how our food choices affect the world around us.  Since its beginnings, Slow Food has grown into a global movement involving millions of people in over 160 countries, working to ensure everyone has access to good, clean and fair food. Slow Food believes food is tied to many other aspects of life, including culture, politics, agriculture and the environment. Through our food choices we can collectively influence how food is cultivated, produced and distributed, and change the world as a result. The selected educational resources are intended for educators and leaders of schools, community centres, non profit and community based organsiations to carry out workshops in schools and non formal settings to educate learners and members of society about taste and food in general. Food can be used also as a tool to go deeper into discussions about common good and society. This collection of resources includes:


  • Developed by experts in food education
  • Easily replicable in different settings

Challenges in implementation

  • Ensure that health and safety rules are respected and considered when working with many people.
