Good, Clean, and Fair

At all levels, the Slow Food movement promotes Good, Clean, and Fair food for all.

Good:  A fresh and flavorsome seasonal diet that satisfies the senses and is part of our local culture;

Clean: Food production and consumption that does not harm the environment, animal welfare, or our health;

Fair:  Accessible prices for eaters and fair conditions and pay for small-scale producers.
