Slow Food Foothills is a subchapter of Slow Food Asheville and a “convivium” of the international Slow Food movement.  The local groups are called “convivia” because they bring together, in a convivial and enjoyable way, people who love food and traditions. The group promotes and preserves the food culture of the region through the relationships between farmers, the table, families and the community.
