Slow Food UW is the largest and most active university Slow Food chapter in the US. Our unique perspective of the food system sets us apart from other Slow Food chapters. We have a responsibility to be environmental stewards and social justice activists, and we work hard to improve both our on-campus and off-campus Madison community.
Slow Food UW’s mission is to promote affordable access to good, clean, and fair food by engaging our community in a food system that is socially, economically, and environmentally just.
Anyone and everyone is welcome in our kitchen. Our success depends on a dedicated crew of volunteers. Each semester, over forty student interns, a team of nine student directors devote their time to furthering Slow Food UW’s mission of providing good, clean and fair food for all. Interns spend their time planning meals, cooking, sourcing local ingredients, leading workshops, running programs in South Madison, managing organizational finances, and sharing what we do with the community through our newsletter and social media accounts.
