Slow Food RVA

Supporting good, clean, and fair food in the greater Richmond, Virginia area

Slow Food is an idea, a way of living, and a way of eating. We are a grassroots movement with over 100,000 members in 132 countries around the world that links the pleasure of food with a responsible commitment to community and the environment.

Slow Meat

Slow Meat is a movement that actualizes the culture of confinement issue and an event that brings together ranchers, farmers, butchers, chefs, eaters and more to share ideas on how we can turn the herd toward meat that is good, clean and fair for all.  

We believe in SLOW Meat: Better, Less.
