WATCH, LEARN AND ENGAGE IN SLOW FOOD FROM HOME.

Slow Food Live brings Slow Food into your home with free, virtual webinars and conversations led by experts in a skill or topic that you can join from anywhere on your digital device.

Participation through Zoom is generally free for anyone and streamed on social media. We will include how viewers can support the person or business in all promotions and during the webinar. Sessions are 30-45 minutes of teaching/speaking + 15 minutes for Q&A. Participants are live on video and able to ask questions in the chat, but not able to use their audio/microphones during the webinar. We’ll record each session so people can access the content at the times that work for them.
