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.

The Food Chain Workers Alliance has created a comic book focused on food workers in order to illustrate the issues facing these workers, as well as their efforts to organize to improve their workplaces, their communities, and the food system.

The Food Chain Avengers comic book uses examples drawn from real experiences by workers in their respective industries, the five main characters of the story walk us through each of five sectors of the food chain: production, processing, distribution, retail, and food service. The comic book exposes the exploitative nature of the industry vis-à-vis its workers, communities, and the environment. In addition, it tells the story of a struggle to victory.

You can order copies in English and/or Spanish, or download a PDF of the comic book in color here:

“I am running this business, making a product that supports me and my son, but I’m also in turn supporting farmers. It’s very endearing to me because of my family and friends who I have that are farmers.”

B.J. Dennis, a Gullah chef from Charleston, had heard about hill rice — also known as upland red bearded rice or Moruga Hill rice — through Slow Food USA and the Carolina Gold Rice Foundation, the group that brought back Carolina Gold in the early 2000s.

He was stunned to find the rice growing in a field in Trinidad, tended by a farmer descended from slaves who once lived in Georgia.

Slow Food is adding its voice to an appeal to the international community to guarantee Afrin’s stability and security and prevent further Turkish aggression from within Syria and across the Syrian border.

Since January 20, the Turkish government has been bombing Afrin, one of the three provinces of the autonomous Syrian region of Rojava. Slow Food has been working with the local people in this area for years, ensuring that the land and local food production are not abandoned, and they have become an integral part of the movement’s global network.

Today, Slow Food officially launched a Presidium for Sámi Cured Reindeer Meat, or gurpi. Sámi are indigenous nomadic reindeer herders. Their traditional way of life revolves around migrating with their semi-wild reindeer to different pastures depending on the time of the year, weather, and access to food: Reindeer are central to Sámi culture.
