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

<strong>We have a place for you at our table.</strong>



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.

“As we reintroduce grains into our diets, we challenge the current food system in which millions of acres are being exploited by genetically modified and hybridized grain varieties to feed animals rather than humans.”

Grains have long been an important staple in our diet but “modern grains” have been altered so much that they lack the truly necessary nutrients and instead often make us sick. Nana Meyers, Ph. D from the University of Colorado, will be at Slow Food Nations 2018 July 14 to debunk some of the mysteries around grains, nutrition and human health during The Whole Grain Experience workshop.

“I didn’t switch to organic farming for the money or a utopian dream. I did it for myself and my family in order to stay in agriculture.”

Not only do conventionally grown foods seem to be harming consumers, but also the growers. In addition to issues of sustainable practices, land management, and future farmers, what will this mean for the future of farming? Join the Farming for the Future: A Slow Food Nations Summit on July 14 at Slow Food Nations 2018 for some interactive conversations on agriculture’s future. Tickets on sale now!

Peggy Rathmann and John Wick's atypical approach to land conservation on their Marin County ranch led to unexpected success.

Often overlooked in the conversation around climate change is how we use land. The erosion and degradation of soil caused by plowing, intense grazing and clear-cutting has played a significant role in the atmospheric accumulation of heat-trapping gases.

Regenerative agriculture highlights the land, people and soil that is the future of a healthy planet. To explore this topic further, join us at the 'Farming for the Future' summit at Slow Food Nations 2018:
