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.

Today the Slow Food USA Chefs' Alliance, together with Meatless Monday and Anson Mills, promotes 'Cook Up A Better Future' - a campaign promoting biodiversity in food, reducing meat consumption, and fighting climate change.

Wild Olive, the only participating restaurant in South Carolina, will be serving up Sea Island Red Peas with housemade ricotta and Root Baking Company bread. We hope you'll make dinner plans to join us at The Olive, but no matter where you find yourself, we hope you'll serve up a Menu for Change!

"We deserve to know where our food comes from." – Zooey Deschanel

The Farm Project (an initiative created by Zooey and her husband Jacob Pechenik) will explore reconnecting people with the food they consume, and examining local, healthier options.

How can we bridge the gap between ‘fast food' living and responsible consumption when mass production and a throw-away mindset still dominate the lifestyles of most people?

We are the net is the motto of Slow Fish 2017. In other words, we are all part of a living, interconnected system that we act upon when we buy seafood products. Since the beginning of the Slow Fish campaign in 2004, the network has established a body of knowledge, exchange and relations between hundreds of “nodes”, for which Genova, Italy is now a reference point: fishers, artisans, chefs from all over the world meet to share and support a good, clean and fair approach to the fishing sector, marine biodiversity and balance of freshwaters.

A few years after Denmark decided to privatize its fisheries in 2006, half of the fishing villages in the country had lost all their fleets. The right to fish was given to just a few boat owners, and coastal communities risked losing access to the sea. The Thorupstrand community formed a collective company to avoid the negative consequences of privatization. They introduced an alternative quota system for the common benefit of coastal communities.

Cheese, the international Slow Food event dedicated to quality artisanal cheeses, is returning to Bra this year from September 15 to 18, with one important innovation: Only raw-milk cheeses will be sold at the market, which features producers from around the world.

Why are we doing this? Because 20 years after the event’s first edition and the petition organized in defense of raw milk, it is more important than ever to assert the importance of milk that is alive and to inform consumers about the issues.

Piero Sardo, the president of the Slow Food Foundation for Biodiversity and Cheese’s scientific advisor, explains the reasoning behind this choice.
