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.

"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!

Crops like tepary beans are emblematic of what Slow Food USA's Ark of Taste tries to recognize: traditional crops threatened by industrialization are both culturally valuable and practical.

The Fall armyworm, so called because it migrates into North America from warmer climes in the autumn (fall), is causing major damage to crops in Africa, and could spread to Europe and Asia. According to a report by the CABI, it may become a “major threat to agricultural trade worldwide”.

Hundreds of years before handcrafted artisan beers became fashionable, the Xhosa people of South Africa had been brewing their own home made beer from ingredients and tools produced in the region where they lived. And they're still making it today! And we're proud to say it recently became the 4000th addition to our Ark of Taste. Read more:

Slow Food correspondent Kim Bayer explores relationships that are helping farmers who are passionate about history and taste find success, providing good, clean and fair food for their community.

Her business is unique in part because her grow list includes over 20 varieties from the Slow Food Ark of Taste. These rare Ark foods, along with her organic certification, set Stauffer’s business apart and let her earn fair prices for her heirloom tomatoes.

A special recipe exchange to honor a special event and a special product: the Gran Chaco Presidium at the Indigeneous Peoples' Forum at IFAD. Recipes using this traditional Argentinian flour were baked in Rome for the occasion by Fabrizio Franco of Pane e Tempesta.

“It was a stimulating challenge that helped bring cultures closer together. When you work with typical ingredients from a specific territory that also represent a culture, you are sensitive to much more than how they taste, you feel all the history behind the product."
