Education projects of Slow Food differ from most food education as they are based on the idea that food means pleasure, culture and conviviality. They take many different forms:
- guided tastings
- farm and artisanal food producer visits
- knowledge exchange between generations
- practical workshops and meals with artisanal producers.
Slow Food believes that, by understanding where our food comes from, how it was produced and by whom, children can learn how to combine pleasure and responsibility in daily choices, appreciate the cultural and social importance of food and understand the impact of food production on the environment.
