Slow Food Asheville
Slow Food Asheville is a local chapter, or “convivium,” of the international Slow Food movement. The local groups are called “convivia” because they bring together, in a convivial and enjoyable way, people who love food and traditions. Our convivium was founded in March, 2003.
Slow Food Asheville’s mission is to promote and preserve the food culture of our region through the relationships between farmers, the table, families, and the community with whom we share our food.
