Have you ever heard of the slow food movement? Despite what it might sound like, it’s not about eating snails, turtles, and sloths. The slow food movement about envisioning “a word in which all people can eat food that is good for them, good for the people who grow it and good for the planet,” or as USA Today puts it, “slow food aims to everything that fast food is not.” As delicious as Chicken McNuggets are, I have to say that fresh, locally grown produce usually comes out ahead for me. Slow Food USA is a non-profit organization based in Brooklyn, NY that is working to grow the slow food movement and “to create dramatic and lasting change in the food system.” I wish I could tell you more about what their strategy is to accomplish this, but their 5 Year Strategic Plan is “coming soon.”

Eat Slowly, Apply Quickly

If you’ve been visiting your local farmers’ market and trying to eat local foods as often as possible, then Slow Food USA might be a place that you want to think about working. The organization’s focus is on education, which they approach through a variety of programs. These include Slow Food in Schools, Slow Food on Campus, Renewing America’s Food Traditions, Slow Food Nation, and quite a few more. If any of these programs look like something that you might have been involved with in college, then why not take a look at Slow Food USA’s Employment and Internships page. Right now, most of their job openings are at the Director level (which is unfortunately too advance for most of you), but they do have one job as a Youth Program Coordinator that looks inviting for new grads. The job description says that they’re looking for someone with 3 years of experience in a related field, but the rest of the description makes it sound like something that could be a good fit for a lot of new grads who have spent some time working, volunteering, and extra-curricularing (yes, I invented a new word) during college. They’ll be accepting cover letters and resumes for this position until January 16th at jobs.sfis@slowfoodusa.org. There’s also a job listing for a Membership Assistant at the bottom of Slow Food USA’s Jobs page that doesn’t fit in with the rest of the page. This looks like a surefire entry level job, although it says that the job starts in November of 2007. Considering the start date and the placement on the page, this looks like it might be an outdated posting, but you could give it a shot if it looks interesting to you.
