It is the notion that our environment, culture and economy are profoundly affected by what we choose to eat. We believe that everyone should have access to high-quality food produced in a sustainable and equitable way.

The Chicago chapter of Slow Food promotes this concept through events and programs hosted in the Chicagoland area.

As an educational non-profit, we rely on your membership and support to find our initiatives. Learn more.

preSERVE Garden

The preSERVE Garden, located in the North Lawndale neighborhood, was founded in 2010 by converting a vacant lot into a community garden to promote green space, food education, and healthy eating. Volunteers help keep the garden going throughout the season.
