If you care about local farmers, ranchers, fishers, animal welfare, the joy of a shared meal, preserving food culture, protecting the environment or avoiding GMOs

We have a place for you at our table.



Our food should be tasty, seasonal, local, fresh and wholesome.


Our food should be affordable, while respecting the dignity of labor from field to fork.


Our food should nourish a healthful lifestyle and be produced in ways that preserve biodiversity, sustain the environment and ensure animal welfare.


Good, clean and fair food should be accessible to all and celebrate the diverse cultures, traditions and nations that reside in the USA.


Slow Food Charleston is part of the global Slow Food network of over 100,000 members in more than 150 countries. Our mission as an international grassroots membership organization, and 501(c)3, is Good, Clean, and Fair food for all.

A better, cleaner and more fair world begins with what we put on our plates – and our daily choices determine the future of the environment, economy and society.

Through a vast volunteer network of local chapters, youth and food communities, we link the pleasures of the table with a commitment to protect the community, culture, knowledge and environment that make this pleasure possible.

"I feel compelled to help preserve these varieties because without them history is simply erased... If the story doesn’t move you, the superior flavor will, and that is the magic of heirloom and Slow Food Ark of Taste varieties.” Love this story from our Michigan SF governor Kim Bayer!
