Forgotten Foods Campaign
Slow Food UK’s Forgotten Foods programme preserves Britain’s unique food heritage. It travels the country collecting small-scale quality produce threatened by industrial agriculture, environmental degradation and homogenization. Please make a contribution to our work and DONATE NOW.
Often, these products are close to extinction, so we aim to raise awareness so they may be rediscovered and returned to the market.
This way, we preserve our country’s edible biodiversity, support small farmers and save traditional flavours that are easily lost in today’s modern food system.
Your contribution helps us to raise awareness by:
· Including products into our catalogue of endangered foods
· Holding thematic events at local and national level
· Educating the public about the Forgotten Foods
· Developing new distribution channels
· Encouraging chefs to include Forgotten Foods in their menus

We suggest a minimum donation of £5 to support our work.
As a thank you for your generosity you will be included in a prize draw to win a table for two at NOMA, Copenhagen, where René Redzepi champions local artisan food, accompanied by a food tour around the city by renowned writer and Slow Food Copenhagen leader Katrine Klinken.
