Slow Food Hunter Valley members are part of a large international, national and local network of people who are continually striving to improve our food systems and negate the impact of food industrialisation. Our local Slow Food community has over 50 members with a large list of “friends/volunteers” who also assist with projects, attend meetings and receive communications (by registering for our mailing list).

Our members are committed to:
saving food cultures
maintaining biodiversity
improving our food system to ensure a more equitable distribution of food
reducing food waste, and
at the same time, enjoying the pleasures of good, clean and fair food.

Become a member – or renew your existing membership – and become part of the Slow Food Hunter Valley community.  We recommend new memberships and renewals are done through Slow Food International website (this is the most streamlined process). You will be asked to select the length of membership, complete a form and then be asked to select your Slow Food community. Please select NSW – Hunter Valley from the drop-down list.

Please note: you will be asked for your date of birth due to discounts based on age.

Slow Food International makes us aware of new members at month’s-end. Therefore, if you join early in the month it can be some time before we are made aware of your new membership. We would like to make sure you are not missing out on opportunities in the interim. Therefore, feel free to drop our Membership Officer, Ruth Adams, an email at so she can add you to our email distribution list immediately.

Our friendly Membership Officer, Ruth Adams.

Alternatively, if you would prefer to deal with our local Membership Officer, please call Ruth on 0402 264 395 or email her at

As a member you will be asked to do as little or as much as you feel comfortable doing. You will meet people, have the opportunity to participate in projects and, through  your volunter work, you will make a difference. But above all else, you will have fun!
