Membership in Slow Food USA usually costs $60 a year, but for the month of September the organization that supports good, clean and fair food is letting new members join for a gift of any size.

That means that if you want to join and support the organization that is sponsoring the Time for Lunch National Eat-In campaign, you can join for $1 or $1000 dollars – it’s up to you. They explain it as “give more if you can; less if you can’t.”

Their website outlines the benefits of membership.

  • Get connected to your local chapter, made up of people who care about food, agriculture, health and the environment.
  • Get invited to local, regional, national and international events that celebrate good, clean, fair food.
  • Receive member-only discounts on select events and publications.
  • Become part of a growing movement that is changing the way America eats!
