Slow Food Uganda is part of Slow Food international, an association founded in 1989 that pursues cultural, environmental and social objectives that develop around the central role that food plays in our lives, facilitating and promoting the creation of a network of local food communities in both the global north and south.
These communities share the association’s principles and cultivate common interests, starting with food production and consumption systems and promoting ways of life that respect all people and the social, cultural, and environmental contexts in which they live and work. In Uganda, Sow Food has been active since 2006 working on projects like; the food communities, presidia, 10,000 gardens and empowering regional coordinators in order to promote the right to good, clean, and fair food for everyone at all times.
good because it is healthy as well as having enjoyable sensory qualities;
clean because it is mindful of the environment and animal welfare;
fair because it is respectful of the work of the people who produce, process, and distribute it.
