Community members passionate about good, clean, fair food have formed two official Slow Food Communities in Mpophomeni and the surrounding areas.
Slow Food envisions a world in which all people can access and enjoy food that is good for them, good for those who grow it and good for the planet. The food production and consumption systems most common today are harmful to the earth, to its ecosystems and to the peoples that inhabit it. Everyone can contribute to Good, Clean and Fair food through their choices and individual behaviour.
