SNAIL OF APPROVAL
JOIN THE NATIONAL SNAIL OF APPROVAL NETWORK
local/regional awardees recognized nationally
All Snail of Approval awards are given out locally by chapters, such as Slow Food Columbus; Slow Food USA is not an awarding body. However, in order to nationally recognize businesses, SFUSA created a minimum standard that all participating chapters abide by, known as the Eligibility Application. With this requirement, no matter where in the country a business operates, it must meet the baseline standard.
To be recognized with Snail of Approval distinction, Slow Food Columbus also requires that applicants list two other organizations that can vouch for their application AND complete a short 30-minute interview with at least two Board members.
