THE FUTURE OF FOOD IS THE FUTURE OF THE PLANET

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.

WE BELIEVE FOOD SHOULD BE

GOOD

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

FAIR

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

CLEAN

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

FOR ALL

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

WHO WE ARE

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.

It’s versatile, chic and easy to work with: eat more avocados, and we’ll be healthier and more beautiful. It is really so simple? What’s the real story behind the marketing?

Like the rest of the continent and the world, Bolivia has not escaped globalization, which has marginalized local identities. But not everyone is prepared to accept a future of corporate-owned and genetically-modified farming. Bolivia libre de Transgénicos is promoting acroecology and a way of life that is better for both farmers and the environment.

Even though Turkish cheeses aren’t commercially widespread, the culture of eating cheese in the country begins with breakfast. Cheese is served as a starter, as meze, and used in main dishes and desserts.

In small village markets in Anatolia, you’ll come across an unexpected variety of cheeses that are unknown to many, even to Turkish citizens. Here are three of the rarest.
