Membership & Leadership

Slow Food Portland is an all volunteer organization made up of foodies, chefs, farmers, food professionals & amateurs. There are no local membership dues. Members join the national organization, and in doing so, automatically become part of the local convivium. A portion of your membership dues go to help the programs and efforts of the local chapter.

We welcome all with interest, regardless of membership in Slow Food USA, to our informal potlucks, educational tastings, book discussion group, and seasonal events.

Convivium Leader: Karl Schatz
