Slow Food Orlando events are one of the best ways we know to build awareness, connect with our community of co-producers, seize educational opportunities, and celebrate the pleasures of the table. Our events range from pot lucks and happy hours to gardening classes and farm tours. We partner with other local organizations, farmers, chefs, and co-producers to bring a variety of activities to the community. Do you have an event idea you would like to suggest?
