About Us Slow Food Huron Valley (SFHV) is a 501(c)3 chapter of Slow Food USA and is located in southeastern Michigan. We work to strengthen our region’s food system, build community food security, and preserve our culinary heritage. Like Slow Food USA, our chapter seeks to create dramatic and lasting change in the food system. We inspire a transformation in food policy, production practices and market forces so that they ensure equity, sustainability and pleasure in the food we eat.
A membership with a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farm is one of the best, most cost effective and healthiest ways to provide “good, clean, and fair” food for your family. This image from the Lexicon of Sustainability explains what CSAs are all about. Come to our annual CSA Fair to meet your farmers!
