Slow Food East Bay’s leaders are volunteers who organize programs that bring Slow Food’s values to our community. We are supported by fundraising and, in small part, by the dues-paying members of Slow Food. We believe that everyone, dues-paying or not, can get involved in the healthy food and agriculture movement. With diabetes and obesity ruining our nation’s health and with climate change and environmental injustice worsening, we can’t afford to ignore the consequences of the way we grow, distribute and eat food
The leaders of Slow Food East Bay are ordinary people who volunteer their time to bring Slow Food’s values to our community. We aren’t “foodies” and we don’t all work in food. We do all believe that organizing our community to share and support good food is a cause that’s worth our time and passion.
The volunteer leadership team consists of a few elected positions and a planning committee that advises them, offering input and planning events. The team (attempts to!) meet once a month. There are no limits to the size of the planning committee, but committee members agree to attend meetings and to co-organize at least one event per year.
And You? We’re looking to expand our volunteer leadership team. If you have interest in learning more, write us.
