Become a Member of Slow Food Hawaii
Slow Food is an international non-profit powered by members, in the United States and around the world. By joining Slow Food USA, you are contributing to national initiatives and policy, as well as contributing directly to your local grassroots chapter - Slow Food Hawaii! When you become a Slow Food member, you’re joining a global community of people who are working together to make food good, clean, and fair for all.

Being a membership-based organization means our health and success relies on the commitment and contributions of our members. Membership is a major source of revenue (90% of our gifts come from people donating less than $100/year) and our main source of power: the more members we have, the more influence we have, and the more work we’re able to accomplish worldwide.
