· A student driven Slow Food chapter at Sonoma State University
· Working to promote quality, locally produced food on our campus and in our community.

We are guided and sponsored by the Russian River Convivium.


· Food production is a large contributor to environmental degradation throughout the world. In fact, 25% of all GHG's emissions are the result of industrialized agriculture.
Farm workers are the most exploited labor force in the American economy.
· Our food production system is extremely fragile and is showing signs that it may collapse.
· Food is a culture-creator. It brings people together.
· Food not only nourishes: it gives us pleasure.

This semester we vote in a new leadership team! President, Vice President, Secretary, Communications & Programing Director are all positions that will need to be filled by the end of the spring semester. Start thinking about yourself in a leadership role. Its fun and is a great networking tool for off campus opportunities like internships and employment. Remember: Slow Food is an international organization with a wide variety of roles for scientists, educators, planners, farmers, chefs...etc. Lets keep this club going. Our club "meetings" will take place at the end of the three FOOD FORUMS on our calendar. At these meetings decisions are made about projects both on and off campus and it is also when voting takes place. See calendar to the left for FOOD FORUM dates, times and locations.

the wisdom of the snail —Slow Food’s symbol
The snail was chosen because it moves slowly and calmly eats its way through life. The snail not only teaches us the virtue of slowness, but its small, unassuming size reminds us that even one individual, at a grassroots level can yield tremendous power.
