Our organization will introduce and promote Slow Food principles to the people of Marathon County

  • We will work with other organizations to create and connect a broad based community of growers, citizens and businesses around the principles of Slow Food.
  • We will build awareness regarding how food choices impact health, the environment and the treatment of animals.
  • We will educate adults and children about food choices.
  • We will advocate for farmers and artisans who grow, produce, market, prepare and serve healthy food.
  • We will create a “marketplace” for food in Marathon County designed to improve access to healthy food for people of all income levels and also reward those individuals who are bringing food to market in a fashion that is sustainable and humane.
  • We will advance the concept that 'knowing where our food comes from' can enhance the enjoyment of local, seasonal and sustainably grown food.
  • We will promote the celebration of food as a cornerstone of pleasure, culture and community.
