Welcome to Slow Food Auckland

connecting plate, planet, PEOPLE AND POLITICS

Who We Are...

Slow Food is a grassroots organisation, founded in 1989, to prevent the disappearance of local food cultures and traditions, counteract the rise of the fast life and combat people’s dwindling interest in the food they eat, where it comes from and how our food choices affect the world around us.

Slow Food Auckland is an active, local group committed to events, activities, causes and collaborations that bring the Slow Food philosophy to life.

We work at a local level is to help people engage with the important issues affecting our planet and to promote the local growers, producers, ethical entrepreneurs and businesses within our communities who support good, clean and fair food.

Expect to have fun, meet new friends and enjoy great food.


We can change the world one meal at a time.

There is no one common path to Slow Food. Some of us stumbled across it via friends (like I did) others actively searched for an organisation reflecting their ethical beliefs around food production.
