Purpose Statement: Inspiring a just, craft, and regenerative food movement.
Slow Food Cascadia is an annual event held the first weekend in October, celebrating our region’s Ecogastronomy, held in the original gateway to the Pacific Northwest, Vancouver, WA. The event is a partnership between Slow Food, Port of Vancouver, Clark College culinary, and City of Vancouver. Slow Food Cascadia is fiscally sponsored by Slow Food Southwest Washington, 501c3, EIN #: 75-3182016.
Cascadia is a region of cascading waters feeding the North Pacific Ocean, from the panhandle of Alaska to the Continental Divide and down to San Francisco Bay.
During a work session at the 2014 Terra Madre, colleagues from across the Pacific Northwest joined together to discuss opportunities for collaboration. One idea floated was to launch an annual regional Slow Food event to highlight the growing food culture of the Pacific Northwest.
Members of the Southwest Washington chapter have continued to nurture this idea, and brought together a partnership of local agencies to host the regional Slow Food gathering for the first 5 years(2018-2022). The event aspires to rotate hosting sites around the region starting in 2023.
