SLOW FOOD YOUTH NETWORK (SFYN)
The Slow Food Youth Network
The Slow Food Youth Network is celebrating food culture and local tastes and reducing food waste while championing sustainability and biodiversity in their communities and around the world.
The SFYN connects the up-and-coming generation of passionate Slow Food members around the globe. Spurred by extra energy, innovative ideas and solutions that uphold the Slow Food philosophy are shared. While upholding the Slow Food principle that food should be good, clean and fair for all, SFYN leaders are inspiring change in how we produce and consume our food on the local and global levels. The Youth Network extends its reach across the globe through community-based events like Disco Soup celebrations, Eat-Ins, and Food Film Festivals.
SFYN around the world
Students from the University of Gastronomic Sciences and other universities together with young farmers, fishers, artisans, chefs and activists launched the SFYN in 2007. Today the network is represented in many countries – from South Korea to France, the USA and Mexico.

Slow Sipping with Matcha
Matcha is beloved for its health benefits and brings the clarity and energy you need into your busy day. If you drink every sip of matcha with a purpose – whether that’s redeeming its sustained caffeine effects, appreciating its complex flavor profile, or acknowledging its historical significance – you can achieve some sense of mindfulness and “slowness” in your day!
