Every Slow Food member around the world is part of a convivium – a local chapter – that brings the Slow Food philosophy to life through the events and activities they organize in their communities.

From simple shared meals and tastings, to visits to local producers and farms, conferences and discussions, film screenings/festivals and much much more. Check out our Convivia in Uganda: http://www.slowfood.com/nazioni-condotte/uganda/

After a few years of growth, the network has by now become deeply rooted in Central Uganda, laid new strategies in western Uganda, and developed a strong, credible presence in North and Eastern Uganda. In some parts of the country the membership network is stronger and more solid; in others the network of Terra Madre food communities and the projects (like the 10,000 Gardens in Africa, Presidia, etc.) are more consolidated.

Given the socio-economic state of Uganda over the past few years, Slow Food’s mission—to guarantee access to food that is good, fair, and clean—is more topical and urgent than ever before.
