Slow Food Noosa Incorporated is supporting local growers and food artisans as well as promoting the Slow Food philosophy. All of our events embrace not only the Slow Food way but also raise much-needed funds to support our community. Our events assist projects and people who are making a positive difference in the community and promoting the Slow Food philosophy.
