How did Slow Food allocate the funds raised during Negroni Week?

Thanks to more than 10,000 participating venues during Negroni Week 2022, bars and restaurants across  73 countries raised a combined $521,000  to foster Slow Food’s mission. 

Half of the funds raised during Negroni Week 2022 will be used to directly support global programs and initiatives led by Slow Food. Key programs supported from Negroni Week funds include the Slow Food Coffee Coalition, the Slow Food Wine Coalition, the Cooks’ Alliance, and education and biodiversity projects. 

The other half of funds raised will fuel the Slow Food Negroni Week Fund, which will issue grants to community-led food and beverage projects all over the world.
