Frequently Asked Questions

What does volunteering at Slow Food Nations mean?
Being a volunteer at Slow Food Nations means you can help be a part of what makes all of our events run smoothly, contribute to our sustainability initiatives and get a sense of the inner workings of creating a festival.

What is the time commitment?
This varies based on the shift you choose. The time commitment will be outlined in the sign up form, available in the spring.

I signed up for a volunteer shift but can no longer make it. What do I do?
Please inform the Volunteer Coordinator ([email protected]) as soon as you can. We ask that volunteers give at least a week notice prior to the event.

What are the benefits of being a volunteer?
As a volunteer, you will receive a Slow Food USA t-shirt made specifically for volunteers. In some positions, you will be able to attend the event that you are supporting. For example, ambassadors/volunteers at workshops and talks will be in the room during the event to listen in and in some cases participate.

Can I sign up for more than one shift?
Of course! Volunteers are welcome to sign up for as many shifts as they like.

How do I sign up?
Our shift sign-up form will be available in the spring. In this form you can read descriptions of the events you will be volunteering at, and can choose the days and times that work best for your schedule.
