About


We work to promote the greater enjoyment of food through a better understanding of its taste, quality and production.

Slow Food Ludlow Marches is a volunteer run ‘not-for-profit’ group whose aims are shared with thousands of like minded people all around the world through the international Slow Food movement (founded in Italy in 1989). Under the umbrella of Slow Food in the UK we all work locally to bring the principles of Slow Food to our own community.

Slow Food envisions a world in which all people can access and enjoy food that is good for them, good for those who grow it and good for the planet. With the current state of emergency this is now an ever more pressing issue.

In normal circumstances  we organise a varied programme of communal meals, visits, workshops and business network events which promote and celebrate the diversity and quality of local food and drink and the skills of those who grow, rear and cook it. We aim to reconnect people with the origins of what they eat and to explore how our everyday choices affect the environment around us, its biodiversity and our own health. At this present time we are focussing all our energy on how people can still access the food and supplies they urgently require. We are doing this by working as part of Pulling Together Ludlow to manage a Helpline and Delivery Service to those in most need. We are in close contact with our Business Members to see how we can best support them as small businesses with publicity and connection to their delivery services.

 Joining and continuing to support Slow Food Ludlow Marches, the largest Slow Food group in the UK outside of London, is even more crucial to stay connected with the latest initiatives.
