We're delighted to host this year's big fundraiser bash, the (s)low down, at the Wythe Hotel in Brooklyn. The party will feature artisanal cocktails with spirits provided by local distilleries, delectable seasonal dishes created by Slow Food NYC Snail of Approval awardee Reynard, oysters from Sea to Table, wine, beer and hard cider and live foot-tapping bluegrass music. The party’s extraordinary raffle and silent auction is like no other, offering one-of-a-kind, food-centric experiences.
If I eat meat, does that mean that I don’t care about animals? Absolutely not! Including meat in your diet does not have to mean leaving your values at the restaurant or grocery store door. We hope you will join Slow Food NYC in demanding that our New York State legislators support banning the use of gestation and confinement crates.

Slow Food NYC works to create a food system based on the principles of high quality and taste, environmental sustainability, and social justice—in essence, a food system that is good, clean and fair. We seek to move our culture away from the destructive effects of an industrial food system and towards the cultural, social and economic benefits of a sustainable food system, regional food traditions, and the pleasures of the table.
