Slow Food Orange is part of the International  Slow Food non-profit, eco-gastronomic member-supported organization that was founded in 1989 to counteract fast food and fast life, the disappearance of local food traditions and people's dwindling interest in the food they eat, where it comes from and how our food choices affect the rest of the world,
The Slow Food Movement creates Convivia  which organise tastings, dinners, food tourism, cooking courses, fairs, markets and other Slow Food Programs. 
More than 800 Convivia are active in 50 countries.  Slow Food has taken off in Australia in recent years and there are a number of convivia around the country with every state and territory represented:
Other Local Conviviums are Slow Food Bathurst and Slow Food Blue Mountains.

Slow Food works to defend biodiversity in our food supply, spread taste education and connect producers of excellent foods with co-producers through their events and other initiatives that showcase products of excellent gastronomic quality and to offer discerning consumers the opportunity to meet producers.
Quotes:
  I am an enormous admirer of the Slow Food Movement and of the remarkable work it has done to encourage sustainable agriculture, to increase appreciation of good food and to celebrate and share the knowledge – often developed over millennia - of the traditions involved with quality food production.

HRH Charles, the Prince of Wales

Being a Slow Food member is a self-fulfilling prophecy because as the saying goes, if ‘We are what we eat, who wants to be fast, cheap and easy!

Christine Pardee, co-director The State and Local Food Policy Project and coordinator The Iowa Food Policy Council, Des Moines, Iowa, USA

Slow Food  believes the enjoyment of excellent food and drink should be combined with efforts to save the countless traditional grains, vegetables, fruits, animal breeds and food products that are disappearing due to the prevalence of convenience food and industrial agribusiness. Through the Ark of Taste and Presidia project (supported by the Slow Food Foundation for Biodiversity) and Terra Madre, Slow Food seeks to protect our invaluable food heritage.
