Frequently Asked Questions
Can you change the mailing address associated with my membership?
Sorry, No. Your membership with Slow Food is managed by the staff of Slow Food USA. If you need to change your mailing address or email, please contact them.
I'd like to join (or renew)... how can I do that?
You can join or renew online.
Do I have to be a member to attend your events?
Typically, no. Usually our events are open to the general public, but from time to time, we may reserve spots for members only, especially for popular events where space is limited or offer reduced prices to Slow Food members.
What do your events cost?
Most of our events are between $20 and $40 per person, which covers the cost of food, beverages, and space. Occasionally, fundraisers will cost more, but those events will always be declared as fundraisers.
Where do you get your funding?
Local chapters receive 3% of Slow Food membership dues ($1.80 to $2.25 per membership). The bulk of monies spent in the service of our mission are gradually raised through local events and occasional special fundraisers.
How can I get more involved?
That's the question we were hoping for! Slow Food West Michigan is completely member-driven, so we need all the help we can get.
