Slow Food is the organization I most identify my core values with:
-The food we eat should be nutritious
-Food should be fair and just for all, from those who produce it to those who consume it
-Food production should respect and protect the environment
-Quality food should be available for everyone, not just the privileged
"If the only thing we care about is low prices, we cannot change the world."
Founder of Slow Food
"What a dramatic change could be made if we paid farmers for the real cost of food."
Chef, author, activist and founder of Chez Panisse
"Five percent of the national debt goes to treating food-related diseases [such as diabetes and obesity]."
