What is Slow Food?

Slow Food is an international grassroots organization that promotes good, clean and fair food. It was initially founded in 1986 in Italy by Carlo Petrini to fight against fast food. Since then it is has spread worldwide and there are over 100,000 members in 160 countries. Slow Food has been active in different regions in Canada for more than 10 years, with a particularly strong presence in Montreal, Ontario and British Columbia. During this time, Slow Food has become one of the most important bilingual food organizations in Canada.

Translators will be given a minimum of 48 hours to translate written pieces and in some cases up to a week depending on the size of the task.
