Eat Local Campaign

In 2017 Slow Food launched a global, interactive campaign to support our local farmers and food producers, cut down on imports, and cook with local ingredients.  The campaign was designed to put the relationship between food and climate change into the spotlight. Our food system contributes massively to our total greenhouse gas emissions, and yet, at the same time, agriculture is among the first victims. Together with Slow Food communities around the world, we want to find solutions, starting with how food is made and consumed.

Food that is made locally, sustainably, and on a small-scale is crucial to mitigate our impact on the environment. Choosing food wisely means consuming less energy, producing less emissions, and reducing waste. Food that travels long distances in refrigerated trucks (like melons) create tons of unnecessary greenhouse gas emissions. By purchasing local, seasonal food with less packaging, families can eat healthier, more delicious foods and help save the planet.  

Eat Local in Seattle

Since eating local food is sometimes easier said than done, Slow Food Seattle would like to help connect local producers with local eaters. We are compiling a list of growers, farmstands, farmers markets, CSA programs, and local artisan products in and around the Seattle area that adhere to the Slow Food principles of good, clean and fair food. If you know of a producer who is not on the lists, please let us know: info@slowfoodseattle.org.
