Founded in 2009, Slow Food Down East is a chapter of Slow Food USA serving Eastern, NC. Our mission is to reconnect people today with the rich food heritage of former generations in a way that is healthy and beneficial to both ourselves and the environment we are a part of. We offer educational events and activities to promote sustainability and biodiversity and connect farmers, cooks, educators, students, and everyone else who cares about the food and the environment. Slow Food supports food that is "good, clean, and fair." We work with Cooperative Extension, farmers markets, restaurants and other establishments that use fresh, locally grown foods, and farmers who support sustainable agriculture.
