Russian River Leadership Team

Slow Food is a non-profit, eco-gastronomic organization that supports a bio diverse sustainable food supply, local producers, heritage foodways, and rediscovery of the pleasures of the table. Carlo Petrini founded Slow Food as a response to the opening of a McDonald's in Rome's historic Piazza di Spagna in 1986. Since then, Slow Food has grown in to a international movement with more than 80,000 members in 130 countries world wide.

Slow Food Russian River is one of 150 convivia in the USA to carry out the Slow Food mission at the local level. We support and promote the food traditions that are part of the cultural identity of this country. Please join us as we work to celebrate and sustain the agricultural and culinary traditions of people around the world. Check our our local Programs.

Our Convivium brings people together to enjoy the pleasures of life while promoting and protecting the artisanal producers of food and wine within the greater region of the Russian River watershed. Essential to this purpose is the protection and enhancement of the natural environment, the foundation upon which our artisans practice their craft. The Convivium also works with other convivia from our region, the nation and planet to support Slow Food projects worldwide. To read about the projects we are working on locally click here.
